story

Our story

When Swiss born Peter Wütrich was only eight years old there was a poster hanging on his wall dated 1936.
This wall hanging displayed all the European military aircraft in existence at this time and there, spreading it’s steel wings among them, was an Estonian aircraft.
For some inexplicable reason, from amongst all the planes, young Peter’s gaze was attracted to just this blue, black and white tailed iron bird.

Years later when little Peter had grown into a man, Estonia still held a fascination for him, so much so that he longed to see the country with his own eyes. In 1996 he had the unforgettable experience of stepping onto Estonian soil for the first time and has ever since considered Estonia his home. Two years later, Peter began to live in a small town in Estonia called Võhma. In the year 2000 he and his German wife, Elke, launched a family business, which became the first small enterprise in the town following the closure of the local meat factory. Today this family enterprise has grown and operates in several areas under it’s own trademark of the ‘Võhma Valgusevabrik’ (Võhma Light Factory). The Võhma Light Factory produces 1250 truly enchanting candles every day and these beautiful sources of light captivate people in Estonia and beyond.

Colours

A candle is a detail that adds nuance and creates the mood in every home. A living flame warms the soul and the body. In nature we see an abundance of exciting colours. Natural colour tones, the rough surface and the flaky structure of marble give our candles an aesthetically pleasing appearance and powerful beauty.

A wide range of colours provides opportunity to combine different candles to create a beautiful composition. All the candles are coloured throughout.
