One of the most frequent questions we get about the shop is with regard to the selection of products we sell. Why do we sell what we do? While the shop is foremost a reflection of the things we love, there is an overarching philosophy behind most of what we choose. When we started getting this question more often, I decided to put more thought into it and write this post.
Brand & Iron is a candle company based out of Vancouver. Started by Jordan Derhouson while he recovered from a liver transplant due to a rare genetic disorder, Brand & Iron was never intended to be much other than a creative outlet to pass time during his lengthy recovery. With an initial focus on leather goods, Jordan made everything from key chains to tote bags. Candles were a small part of the line, but with unique scents and a clean burn, Brand & Iron quickly became a popular candle brand, now employing four people alongside Jordan.
