“It is in the truest spirit of community
with the purest notion of multidisciplinary artistic expression and multicultural collaboration
that 1670 Charlestowne was founded to carry us forth from the darkness,
awaken all our senses and nourish our being with light.”

The Collection

Those might be mere words to some — but to Kimberly Powell and Cara Florence, the founders of 1670 Charlestowne, they’re an abiding ethos. From day one, 1670’s mission has centered on the curation and fusion of the age-old artisanal traditions of basket weaving, candle making and regionally specific fragrance extraction, with the finest craftsmen and -women using only the best natural materials. Coupled with other expressions of the arts, such as poetry, 1670 Charlestowne’s fragranced artifacts — starting with the first candle collection, available in autumn 2016 — are designed to be cherished and to encourage reflective contemplation of community, harmony and transcendent light.

Because Charleston and the Lowcountry were the inspiration for the 1670 Charlestowne brand and the sweetgrass scent, a percentage of the sales of all sweetgrass-fragrance 1670 Charlestowne products will be donated to the International African American Museum to support youth culture and arts programs.
