& Chai is a home for thoughtfully handcrafted goods that you can always believe in. Every item is created with you and our planet in mind – sustainability is both the root and heart of all that we do. We’re all about the cosy, homebody lifestyle here.

Founders Michelle and Louise are sisters and lifelong best friends who love to nurture their creative minds, play Animal Crossing until the 2am music starts, and drink coffee like the Gilmores. & Chai was born in spring 2020, when Michelle and Louise started wondering what it’d be like to hug Timmy and Tommy; what would they smell like?! Our Animal Crossing-inspired core collection sold out in one day on Etsy, and we haven’t looked back since. Now, our scent library includes fragrances we’re personally drawn to or that evoke old memories.

Making candles – or anything, really – is one of the most gratifying practices we've turned our hands to. We wholeheartedly love the process from start to finish, and nothing quite beats seeing our products in your homes. We hope that our fragrances bring a touch of extra magic to your world.

Please note: our studio hours are Monday to Friday, 10am – 4pm BST.
