Our Story

Welcome to the world of Nette. We’re so glad you’re here. 

When I started Nette, I wanted to create a clean-burning, sustainable, and super chic candle that would light the way to a new standard for the industry. For me, lighting a candle is a cherished ritual, much like pouring a great glass of wine or drawing a bath at the end of a long day. 

Unfortunately, most of the candles out there all look and smell the same and use harmful ingredients like paraffin wax and cheap, mass-produced vessels you wouldn’t bother keeping around the house longterm. So, after talking to almost a hundred vendors all over the world, I found my dream partners, starting with a factory who sourced a smooth, yummy, non-toxic coconut-soy wax for us, a 75-year-old family-owned glass blowing company in Italy who makes all of our glass vessels by hand, and a ceramicist in Philadelphia who creates our ceramic vessels. They are true treasures you’ll never want to throw out!

We are lucky to work with the best fragrance houses in the world to develop our scents using only the best ingredients and with sustainability and green chemistry top of mind. Our first-to-market GOTS-certified organic cotton wick and our super luxe packaging made from 100% recycled shoeboxes(!) and printed with seaweed ink are the finishing touches. 

I made Nette because I didn’t want to burn anything else in my home and because the multi-billion dollar candle industry is due for a shift towards something cleaner and better. We hope Nette helps you take good care—of yourself and the world around you. 

Take good care,
Carol Han Pyle, Founder and CEO
