Pommes Frites is a candle company run by Kristen Pumphrey in Long Beach, California. Each soy candle is made by hand in small batches in her sunny Southern California studio. She only uses the highest quality ingredients including domestically-grown soy wax and fragrance oils infused with botanical and essential oils.
Kristen grew up in northern Virginia and moved to New York when she was 17 to attend NYU. After graduating in 2006 with a BFA in Acting and Creative Writing, Kristen ended up interning and subsequently working as an Editorial Assistant at AdornMagazine. She spent her days blogging, crafting and writing about artists and crafters for features in the magazine. It was a dream job and she vowed that one day she too would become one of those artisans! Adorn closed its doors in 2008 and she took the opportunity to officially start Pommes Frites.
Kristen always tries to use repurposed or sustainable materials in her products. Her packaging is reusable, and either recycled or recyclable.
