Colourful candles with a twist. These eco, fair trade and hand-poured dinner candles are striped in bold bands of British Colour Standard Nanking Blue and Green Grass. Perfect for special occasions, these unique candles also make a wonderful gift.

 

Nanking Blue is a seasonal colour name introduced in 1936 to describe a blue colour found in Chinese silks. Nanjing, formerly Romanized as Nanking and Nankin, was the largest city in the world from 1358 to 1425 with a population of 487,000 in 1400. This lovely bright blue has been used for many centuries.

 

Grass Green was standardised in 1934. It is one of the oldest existing colour names with 700A.D. as the earliest known record. The colour shown here is a general representation of many grass samples submitted by textile and other colour-using industries.
