The History of Blaze On Fairy Lights & Candles

Blaze On is a Fairy Light & Candle brand started by former haute couture colourist, Lisa Durr and her West End performer, hubby, Blaise Durr. In the late 1990’s Lisa made a break from her runway lifestyle and headed for Asia, to search for a new way of life. She met her husband, Blaise in Koh Tao, Thailand and they traveled together for several years.

 

In tiny rural villages, deep in the mountains they encountered families coming together, to make traditional arts & crafts between their harvests. Artworks were made from the sustainably sourced materials and by-products of local crops and industries. Impressed by the quality & ethics of Thai workmanship, they started a sport-wear label, Climb-On, geared towards visitors to the climbing hotspot, Railay Beach in Southern Thailand. This name later evolved into Blaze On, when they pioneered their first fairy light and candle range.

 

In 2002 Lisa and Blaise made plans to return to London to start a family. Eager to grow the ethical production model further, they invited a small talented group of Thai friends to collaborate. In Summer 2002 the Blaze On brand was launched with the world’s first collection of all-year-round, ethically crafted fairy lights.

 

Today Blaze On light products are created in collaboration with 20 rural artisan teams in Thailand. Despite the company's significant growth, production still largely takes place in the homes of rural people. Most artisans are mums who work with Blaze On, between their harvests. As much as possible, designs continue to evolve from the by-products of local crops and industries. Traditionally these have included materials such as mulberry paper, silk, wicker and rubber leaf, giving their creations a wonderfully natural feel. As their catalogue has expanded, Blaze On has opted to weave more colour, sparkle & bling into their light products.

 

Popular Blaze On designs, such as their best-selling Enchanted Garden Fairy Lights, thriftily make use of off-cuts from Thailand's increasingly vibrant local textiles industry. This progressive symbiotic approach gives both rural & urban communities a second bite at the apple while promoting greater efficiency in the use of local resources.

 

In the long term it is hoped that these opportunities will not only keep local craft alive and evolving, but also provide the young in rural communities genuine options for their future. Income generated is very often invested in education, giving the young the choice to grow beyond their rural community. Providing work locally does however also offer, school leavers a real option to embrace a more traditional way of life.
