Hi, I'm Brianna. I'm the Founder + CEO here at Kindred Home. I started Kindred Home back in 2014 out of the kitchen in my San Diego apartment. I am often asked how this business came to be and the truth is that it happened very organically. The journey began when I left my job in the nonprofit world with a vision to start a company of my own. I'm the daughter of entrepreneurs, I grew up on construction sites and in my parents' offices, and a part of me always knew that one day I'd own my own business that incorporated my love of interior design and my fascination with the concept of home. Over the years I've lived in four different states and I love creating products that bring comfort and joy to our favorites spaces and places.
When the opportunity to learn candle making presented itself it didn't take long to discover how much it suited me. Kindred launched on December 14, 2014, at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, in Pasadena. On my way to the event I stopped to get flowers for my booth and left with my first wholesale order from San Diego's premiere florist. That sealed the direction of the company for the next several years.
While we have since launched a host of additional lifestyle products our candles are still the cornerstone of the Kindred brand. Our candles are all hand-poured in our studio in Rochester, New York. We use 100% soy wax blended in small batches with fragrances and essential oils. Our candles are phthalate free and will burn with a cozy, ethereal glow. Every single candle is hand poured and hand labeled. We are proud to make a product that is beautiful, sustainable, and 100% Made in the USA.
