FUME is a new brand brought together by Dean and Jayne who live in a special part of the world, Okura, Auckland, New Zealand. Okura is home to a marine-reserve, protected environments, native bird life and now FUME Products Ltd.
Jayne faced some life challenges in 2014 seeing her chuck in a corporate marketing role leaving her to re-evaluate her career choices in 2015. It was at this time that travels to New York, San Francisco and breathtaking Byron Bay gave way to the inception of FUME. Goal - to produce EXCELLENT smelling soy candles presented in unique and original vessels. And this is when Dean got involved.
Dean is an experienced concreter and understands its unique abilities, versatility and most of all, its beauty in all states. Dean lays concrete, makes furniture, hearths and even concrete sculptures so Dean's knowledge and expertise was integral in the development phase of creating appropriate pieces.
Concrete has been a part of our life for a few years now so working with concrete to develop homewares and vessels for candles was a natural element of choice. Jayne's marketing background in brand development has seen a merging of talents which has resulted in the building of a variety of interesting components reflective in the collections available.
We will continue to grow and develop the range and widen the options, colours and choices for those that love not only natural soy candles but products handcrafted with concrete. We can't wait to share more with you as our journey has just begun.
Lastly, if you have any enquiries, special requests or would like to enquire about our wholesale or trade pricing don't hesitate to contact us.
