VOAK is a true family team founded by daughter and mum, Vanessa and Adele.  They specialise in handcrafted, beautifully fragranced soy wax candles, melts, tealights, and reed diffusers.

VOAK design and hand pour in small batches from their studio in North Yorkshire. 

Their products contain only the very best ingredients: 100% natural soy wax, and blends of luxury fragrances and essential oils.

They work hard to be a sustainable, low-waste business, consciously producing products that have a limited impact on our environment. 

What are shops saying about us ?

"Beautiful British Designs have helped me discover new designers that I think I would have otherwise missed. They have gone out of their way to help me and I find them very trust worthy and efficient to work with."

Steph Proudly

"Beautiful British Designs offer a great service for an independent shop owner like me. They help me find high quality products from UK designers that I would not have usually seen. I am now stocking Penny Lindop thanks to their service."


"I've been following Beautiful British Designs for a while now and am so pleased I did so. As a retailer I'm constantly looking for new and unusual products that I might not see at the zillion trade shows I visit every year. They feature so many small and interesting designers that something always catches my eye."

Cloud & Cove and By The Way 

"I went straight to your website and love what I see! Just setting up my shop so early days and fully stocked and good to go. But I am so glad you found me and I will be in touch with several of your designers. Really interesting stuff."

"Catherine & Janet from Beautiful British Designs are a delight to work with and their passion for retail is apparent in everything they do. Beautiful British Designs is a great platform to bring independent designers and retailers together in support of the great British high street."
