A soft, white, downy substance consisting of the hairs or fibres attached to the seeds of plants. Ntokíya means "cotton" in Lingala.
Cotton is one of the world's oldest shrubs native to tropical and subtropical regions. Africa's fabric—also known as Wax Hollandais or Dutch Wax—is a resin-printed cotton fabric first manufactured in the Netherlands for Indonesians in the mid-19th century. This candle has an uplifting, reviving, and energizing scent, perfect for integrating the soul with the body on stressful days. Wax is hand-poured into a glass cylinder and is topped off with a white lid.

Made in Toronto, Canada
When you shop at Landing & Co. you are supporting Canadian MADE, and championing independent designers and makers from across the country! Owner and maker, Émeraude Domingos-Mbuku named this small company after her mother because all of her business sense comes from her. When she told her she wanted to start a candle company, she was the first person to tell her that it wouldn’t be easy and that she should remain passionate about what she does in order to succeed. She had watched her mother do it for years, after all. Her mother is her biggest supporter and while she may not be following in her exact footsteps, she holds her ideologies near. For this reason, Catherine & Co. aims to create clean-burning candles at affordable prices through the sourcing of ethical materials from the most reputable companies in North America.
