Cofounded by North Vancouver residents Lucy and Jack Shaw Laykhaus launched its first collection of candles inspired by the fragrances of four BC Lakes, in March 2021.
During the pandemic, walking around lakes and local trails on the north shore was a way to promote a healthy mindset for the founders, and soon became the inspiration behind the business.
Candles can create environments with the environment in mind.
Canada has one-fifth of all freshwater on earth, and according to the WWF, watersheds report none of the 25 assessed watersheds are in “very good” health, facing threats of pollution, habitat loss, and climate change.
Laykhaus believes all generations should be able to enjoy our incredible lakes and so 5% of all sales are directed to marine ecosystem programs that will help scientists fund water monitoring projects, advocacy, and habitat protection projects across Canada.
“We believe the environment in your home should be as fresh and calming as the natural world. Our products invite ways to focus and center ourselves, which is so important in these times” – Lucy Shaw, Co-Founder, and CEO.
With a commitment to sustainable practices, Laykhaus products are designed to be part of the circular economy, to keep materials out of landfill. Our candle tins are circular in use and can be repurposed, even the glue used in labelling is eco-friendly.
Laykhaus is a North Vancouver-based candle and wellness brand, inspired by lakes. Producing a premium line of eco-friendly soy wax candles, designed to bring the calm of the lake to your home. Laykhaus was born from a desire to showcase the calming qualities of lakes, through products that create environments with the environment in mind.
“We are both really passionate about the issues facing our marine ecosystems and so Laykhaus is a way for us to engage in meaningful action” – Jack Shaw, Co-Founder + Creative Director
