• Have you met Mino?

    We stock some wonderful products made by-hand by some exceptional people with wonderful stories.

    We’re kicking off the season with wax alchemist Mino Pinna, who has created a stunning range of Christmassy, as well as spring/summer, candles using only the finest natural ingredients, such as soy wax and pure essential oils. This month we thought we’d celebrate some of these makers and tell you all about them.

    Mino was born in Sardinia, Italy, but came to Scotland more than 19 years ago. Once in the country, he mastered the language, embraced the culture and, with his wife Angelica, who also works in the business, settled down to create their wonderful family.

    Mino started his candle making business after being inspired to fully utilise his skills in design and his experience in graphic and web design.

    After experimenting for several years with numerous waxes, oils and wicks. Eventually, he discovered ‘the perfect formula’ and Mino Pinna was born.

    Mino has devoted himself, his exceptional eye for detail and design and all-of-his Italian passion, to create his company.

    The husband and wife team are passionate about the luxury, natural, hand-crafted products they make.

    What makes Mino Pinna truly unique is something that is often forgotten as businesses grow and that’s the personal touch. Mino lovingly and personally hand-blends, from start to finish, each item the company sells.
