About Us

Who We Are: 

 

       We are a fully operational retail and wholesale manufacturer of home fragrance products (soy candles, wax melts, linen/room sprays etc.). We have several retailers and boutiques who stock our products throughout the Southeastern United States. Our products are free from harmful phthalates, known carcinogens, and unnecessary dyes. We use only the best fragrance oils in our formula blends, and each batch is hand-poured to ensure quality of the finest caliber. Feather and Pearl products are also infused with essential oils that have been specially formulated to be safely melted in candles. Our products are 100% cruelty-free and we do not test on animals (though our linen sprays have been tested for pet bedding and proven to not cause irritation.) 

 

       We are proudly a woman-owned, family-centered small business, with a primary focus on quality products and exceptional customer service. Our branding seeks to provide our customers with products that liken the experience of some of the best places, people, and cultural icons of the American South, particularly Appalachia, where our owner was born and raised. A portion of our proceeds is donated annually to funds and organizations that promote awareness and education on the history and culture of Appalachia, past and present. As the old saying goes: “You can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can’t take the mountains out of the girl.”

Humble Beginnings: 

       Feather and Pearl Candle Co. began in 2017 a small apartment kitchen in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We started up in a truly “bootstraps” fashion, with nothing but a pour pot and some sample wax, and a handmade double boiler. From that, our founder perfected her craft and formed the company, beginning to sell items locally at shows, as well as online. Through reinvesting profits, hard work, and determination, we have continued to expand and grow. 

       Since then, the company has continued to grow and expand, and now resides in North Carolina, after relocating in 2020 to be closer to relatives pending the birth of our new baby. We are thrilled to meet new faces and share our products and our story in a new market, and could not be more excited about the new products and branding in store for 2021. 

Rebranding: 

       During COVID-19, we took this time to welcome our son to the world, and refocused on the next phase of our business. We have undergone a complete rebranding for 2021; maintaining our tried and true favorites with some exciting new additions to our fragrance line. Our products are available in a number of retail stores and boutiques throughout the Southeastern US as well as on our newly-designed website. We know that times have been difficult for everyone this past year, and we are incredibly grateful for the love and support shown to us by our retail stores and loyal customers. You are why we do what we do! We hope to continue to build on those relationships and make new ones in the year ahead.
