Made in Bath, Cotton & Grey was founded by Paul and Claire in 2021, creating beeswax candle gift sets.

What are your core products and what inspired them?

We put together a small box of beeswax candles and handwritten affirmation cards for a close friend who was struggling in lockdown, to help her relax and restore her wellbeing… and she loved them! This was the start of our core product: 12 x Twenty Minute Candles with a ceramic holder for relaxation, meditation, mindfulness and wellbeing.

How did you choose the name of your business?

We love the colours of cotton and grey together and thought it had a ring to it. Also, if the candles didn’t take off, we could use it for other ideas!

Where do you make your products?

At home, in Bath and at the kitchen table

What does a typical day look like?

Following a shock awakening with a cat on my head, tea first, then urgent emails. Shower and pack orders!
