from a dream to reality...
Hello!! Thank you for visiting Maple & Wattle. We're a SMALL family operated business - in fact there is only two of us: myself & my young son AKA sidekick/creative genius. I make all the products in small batches in my Gold Coast home, so you know you're getting something special and handcrafted. My son helps with labelling, packaging and of course checking all the scents to make sure we only offer THE BEST!
Maple & Wattle was born from our love for all things Canadian & Australian, and from my long lasting passion for crafting which started in 2010 as an outlet to cope with the trauma of domestic violence, when after years of constant physical and emotional abuse I was able to finally break free from a horrible situation that endangered both my son and I.
I kept creating beautiful and fragrant candles for years, first just for the two of us, then for friends and acquaintances. Slowly we added bath and body products until when in 2017 due to overwhelming demand, I decided to turn my passion into a business that allows me to stay home with my son - and we LOVE it!
Our mission is simple - make affordable products of the highest quality. We test accurately everything we make, and if it's not good enough for our home, then you'll never see it for sale - our standards are high, and we never drop them. We want you to have a product that you'll enjoy so much you'll keep coming back for more!
Thanks for shopping with us!!
