Celebrating Auroville - Landmark Candle

Maroma

Be the first to review this product

A landmarker is something used to mark the boundary of land. In Auroville granite stones were used as markers to show where the land of Auroville would start and end. Since everything was barren in the beginning these stones were prominent visible guides on the red soil.

Today Maroma brings back the landmark stones as candles for the 50th anniversary of Auroville. One of the major challenges in Auroville today is to secure the integrity of its material foundation, the requested land for the envisioned universal township. Therefore Maroma will give 50% of the profits of the landmark candles to help to secure the land.

Each candle is unique, crafted by hand, made out of recycled wax with a final polish and the Auroville symbol engraving. Maroma is only crafting a limited amount of the landmark candles therefore they are an Auroville Collector’s Edition.

The flame in the heart, sparked by a need to create beautiful products of quality, that are manufactured with care, has grown into an interesting and challenging commercial venture. At Maroma, business is not done ‘as usual’, but with an increasing awareness and sensitivity towards the local and global environment, and towards the needs of Auroville.

Only adults, mostly women, are employed from the local villages.
Priorities include: a clean and pleasant work atmosphere, health care facilities, hygiene programs, savings schemes and nutritional snacks among other things.
45% of Maroma’s net profits are turned over to the development of Auroville and the surrounding villages.
The fragrances of Maroma comply with the guidelines of IFRA.

But what matters most is how things are done; the conscious intention behind each and every detail – for, at Maroma, work is our love and a personal way to focus and grow with the visionary aims of Auroville. For a recent article about Maroma published in The Hindu newspaper,  click here.
