As a new season approaches, we are so thrilled to announce a new brand we are going to be carrying this season - Himalayan Trading Post. You are going to LOVE their products! 

Himalayan Trading Post

Their fragranced candles are handmade and poured into reusable original containers. All of this happens out of their studio in Georgia. They have been featured in numerous publications including Good Housekeeping. We knew these candles would be a perfect fit for Canvas and Paddle because of the rustic yet refined look they will give to your cabin or home (not to mention the amazing scents that will fill a room!)

The backstory: "The company was started in 2004 by Julia Leaphart in her kitchen. It was founded as a way for her to connect with a childhood spent in a small town in the foot hills of the Himalayas and a need to earn a living for herself and her young daughter. She began pouring candles into wooden containers bought from India and selling them at local antique shows and craft fairs. The company grew from there as it found its niche selling high quality artisan candles." (

Make sure to keep an eye out for these great candles this season on the island at Canvas and Paddle, or shop our online store. We will keep you updated about when these amazing scents are available!
