THUYA Candleholders

*click on any picture to view a larger image.


Thuya is a coniferous tree indigenous to the Western Atlas mountains of North Africa.

Its burl is a dense wood with a high oil content. Its color varies from rich golden brown to nearly black. The eyes are round and can be found scattered about in some burls like bird's-eye maple. In others, they are grouped together as small islands that can appear like a cat's paw print.

This unique tree produces a large underground root with many outgrowths.
The Greeks named it thuya, meaning sacrifice, because they used an oil distilled from it as incense in their religious ceremonies.
Used since the days of Solomon and David when it was called thyine wood, thuya is one of the few woods mentioned in the Bible, having been referenced by John in the Book of Revelation.

The breathtaking luster and aromatic fragrance of Thuya wood make it an ideal wood for turning, sculpting, and crafting.
Our Thuya wood products are lovingly hand made by local craftsman in a small coastal town called Essaouira. The finish that's been applied to them is a hand rubbed shellac.

A concerted effort on the part of the Moroccan government, local government, and the craftsman is being made to ensure the sustainability of the Thuya tree.


Each carved and polished candleholder holds one tealight candle.
They each measure 2.2" x 3.3" and are $12 each.
