Candles that inspires elegance in everyday life. Lovingly handcrafted in Brussels.
Ecru is a means to connect memories to a place, and Vietnam is a place like no other. It almost overwhelms the senses, and those natural gifts it is so blessed with are a significant part of what makes it so special. Capturing the aromas of nature, the herbs, the spices, is what can take you there. The essential oils from Vietnam used in Ecru candles are a part of everyday life, and using them to create that sense of connection is what guides us.
What Ecru brings to our products are the herbs and spices that are basic elements of Vietnamese life which are evocative of a particular place. Ecru means ‘raw’ or ‘natural’, so we use pure essential oils from Vietnam to create authentic aromas from the country, as well as vegetable wax and eco wicks for a clean and pure burn.
Much like the people of Vietnam, Ecru was created by two young, energetic people to showcase some of the best features of their home country. Though now based on the other side of the world in Brussels, Belgium, Vietnam and its natural elements are central to what the brand does
Koa is a design graduate from Central Saint Martin’s London, while Zen is a film producer when not making her candles. For them, Ecru will forever be a personal project, and by keeping things small and exclusive it enables us to always remain intimately linked to every product Ecru produces.
Ecru is also committed to the environment and sustainability, and that is why our candles are made with pure essential oils from Vietnam as well as vegetable wax and eco wicks for a clean and pure burn.
