The sass queens behind Coal and Canary, Amanda Buhse and Tom Jansen.
Millennial shoppers LOVE to know the story behind the products they buy and feel emotionally connected to where it comes from, and this is the perfect opportunity to show the behind-the-scenes antics of the whole Coal and Canary crew whether it be a crazy day pouring candles at the office, the incredible amount of donuts we eat or lip syncing to our favourite diva jam.
Going into business with your best friend always has pros and cons. In our case, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and we are lucky for that. For us this means always being on the same page, having the same aesthetic and taste, and having very similar visions for the future of the company. For us it works very well, but you have to remember to find time to connect as friends outside of work and talk about things other than work!
Each candle collection has a special place in our hearts, but we will always have a soft spot for our first two collections we ever produced, the Sweater Weather collection and the Coffee Shop collection. These truly go back to the first days of Coal and Canary, pouring candles in our kitchens and still using filters and borders on our Instagram photos.
