Our team does every step of the candle making process by hand, from putting wicks in the candles to designing the labels. The candles are made in small batches to ensure quality.

About Us

The Burlap Bag is a small operation run by Josiah and Lauren Lowe in Austin, Texas. Greta and Fletcher, our eight and five year olds, love to come "help" at the studio too. We started making candles ten years ago and have a passion for great scents and crazy names that make everyone laugh. Stay smelly, y’all!
