ABOUT US

Lifelong friends, we have a passion for beautiful things. Always on the lookout for unusual items we fell in love with the simplicity of Pintail candles whilst holidaying in the Lake District in England. On returning to South Africa were unable to find a product with the sophisticated fragrances that Pintail candles provide and so our business was born.

We are often asked what inspired the name of our company. Avid dog lovers, we felt that whippets with their unique nature, friendly personality and stylish look epitomised what we aspire to be, with a dash of whimsicality thrown in! The breed originated in England and with both of us having British ancestry we  thought it was an apt name.

On further travels to the UK we discovered a gem in The Duck Company (DCUK). They create delightful handcrafted runner ducks. Each duck is unique, an art piece.  With both of us having a Scottish Heritage we were also delighted to discover Shearer Candles from Glasgow, Scotland.  

We have a passion for British heritage and their tradition of handcrafted products and today we are the proud distributors of these fabulous, luxury brands.
