This collection of Authentic Imperfections comprise of ceramic vessels which have been made by hand in Hala, Sindh, which is in the South of Pakistan. These have been named imperfections because they are chipped in some places, however that is the very charm of the product and much like Pakistan, which perhaps lacks refinement but offers some much authenticity and beauty than perhaps other destinations that superficially may appear perfect. 

Story behind the Name

The Hayatabad Bara is a market we used to visit growing up to purchase electronics, shampoos, conditioners etc. mainly because you could find several of the American and British brands that I was familiar with. It used to have a lot of interest because it was nicknamed the smugglers market as there were several products sold under the radar because of which you get some great bargains.

The design of this vessel reminds me of the blue ceramic household goods that you could find on the market.

Our Candles 

These candles are made to order and you have a choice of which wax and scent you'd like them to be made from. They are made by me in my kitchen with a lot of love and affection as I wish to take you away to Pakistan through the collection of scents which bring back nostalgic memories of Pakistan and through which I wish to share the sensorial experience with you.

This vessel is 45cl and has a burn time of around 55 hours.

Once the candles burn out these make great keepsakes for storing other items or we can arrange a refill for you at a reduced rate of £19.99, however you would have to cover the cost of P&P to send the vessel back to us.

About Hayatabad Bara

The market can be found in Peshawar in Hayatabad, which is a town that borders with the Afghanistan border. You pass this on your way to the Khyber Pass.
