Business Description

Bright Black is a Durham-based company that uses scent as an artistic medium and candles as a platform to share positive narratives about Blackness. Our candles contain carefully crafted, deep and intense, custom scents; all-natural, vegan and phthalate-free coconut and soy waxes; lead-free wooden wicks; and a stunning modern design. All of our candles are hand-poured and made with love. 


Our Vision:

  • A world where the complexity, beauty, and brilliance of Blackness is widely known, recognized, embraced, and celebrated. 


Our Mission:

  • To make and share high-quality candles that honor the Black Diaspora. 


Our Promise:

  • To run our business consciously, using a model that upholds the values of inter-being, cooperative economics, respect, and creativity.
