About Us

Casa Millefiori: The Christmas Market People

Since we started our business, we have felt a strong connection to the most beautiful traditions of German Christmas customs. That is why we started out as an exclusive distributor of hand-made art candles and lanterns at our homeland's classic Christmas markets, whose unique, romantic atmosphere attracts millions of guests from all over the world every year during Advent.

We owe our company identity to our many years of experience as street vendors in the most magnificent, festively decorated squares in Germany. But our product philosophy is based above all on the countless, direct and personal encounters with the many people who gave us a brief insight into their deeper wishes, desires and preferences.

As Christmas Market People from the very beginning, we still see ourselves as pioneers who see their primary task as developing products that – in a trendy and contemporary way – fulfil people’s eternal need for intimate, contemplative and individual mood staging.

As original candle dealers, we continue to be passionate about everything that provides warmth, security and sensuality, and believe that – today as in ancient times – “living candlelight” makes a decisive contribution to this.

  • Worlds of Light

    Together with our friends and partners all over the world, we are always looking for those handcrafted light works that best showcase the timeless, magical attraction of “living lights” in a trendy, contemporary design.
  • Living Light

    Since 1986, we have been passionately dedicated to the Art of Living Light (l'Art de la Lumière Animée). Lively flickering candlelight caresses the soul - unlike artificial light, which only illuminates rooms.
