Hathi comes from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, a novel from 1894 that became a Disney animated classic. Kipling derived the name from the Hindi and Urdu words for “elephant”, fitting for the southeast asian setting of the book. Hathi is the oldest among the elephants and the leader of the troop, remembering the most of all the creatures in the jungle.
These elephants bathe the room in warm candlelight and set the mood for an evening to remember. Stylized in an homage to the Southeast Asian roots that their name comes from, the elongated and rounded facial features of the candles lend them a soft and welcoming appearance.
In many cultures, elephants are regarded as the wisest creatures in the entire jungle; these Hathi elephant candles may very well be one of the wisest touches to your living room, bathroom, kitchen or another part of your home.
As a gift, the Hathi elephant candles serve as a thoughtful piece of decor that can be burned three times or held as an everlasting piece. The candles are perfect for the animal lovers and wild spirits in your life.
