Julia Leaphart created Himalayan Trading Post in 2004. Having grown up in a small hill town in the Himalayas, the company started as way to maintain a connection to a childhood spent in a lovely corner of the world. The idea was to specialize in creative and decorative candles that would add a sense of warmth and character and provide a natural focal point to a room.
Julia began by making candles in her kitchen and selling them at local craft fairs and festivals. The business grew out of her house and into a larger space with room for larger scale production and inventory storage.
Himalayan believes that a candle doesn’t have to be bought hidden beneath layers of expensive, wasteful packaging. A candle be a decorative piece in itself. Find these beautiful additions to your home across the country and in Canada.
