Types – Applications – Properties
When colors need to be adapted to the raw materials (wax, fragrances, additives) and production process of a manufacturer we recommend custom developed colors. These colors are designed according to manufacturer’s requirements and tested under defined conditions. Each delivery batch is manufactured using a standardized production process according to specified color values and following strict quality tests. This allows customers to save on tedious development work but not compromising on quality, as they will possess a ready-made , tested color product. Using these customized colors can minimize expensive production costs.
We recommend these colors
- To avoid errors caused by frequent mixing processes
- To increase productivity
- To standardize industrial production processes
- To simplify quality assurance
Rainbow Color-Mixing System
Manufacturers that choose to work with a few base colors and develop their own color formulas in their laboratories are supported by our innovative RAINBOW system. RAINBOW is a cloud-based software developed by us that provides users with formulas, with different types of wax and production modes being taken into account. There are formulae for over dipping and solid-coloring.
RAINBOW makes it possible for you to be faster and more flexible when responding to customer requests or rush orders. Warehousing will be simplified and the amount of capital tied up can be decreased. However, colorists and final testing under production conditions is still required.
Bekro informs candle manufacturers and retailers about the future color trends as early as one year in advance, so that your range of candles will always be up-to-date.
Bekro has partnered with trendsetters, trend scouts and leading trend agencies for many years. In personal discussions, during trend presentations and from trend forecasts we gather information that does not only influence the Bekro trend but is also actively used for this purpose. In this way, you get precisely tailored, customized and seasonal color lines that are important pillars for you when planning and arranging your product range.
This trend is driven by a desire to reconnect with the earth. Seeking a sense of belonging, we’re drawn to solitary landscapes in search of lost civilisations and ancient wisdom. The sun sets over the rich-hued Autumn desert, casting long shadows and bringing out the beauty of earthy twilight shades. Clay-like textures encourage us to feel grounded in the moment. Handcrafted finishes and carving become key for designing unique products.

Unmapped and untouched environments are becoming rare and intriguing, inspiring a shift towards wild and untamed narratives. At home we create the perfect winter retreat, a remote Nordic isle isolated from the mainland. Objects are curiously rough and rustic and colors are stonewashed in appearance. Cosy up in chunky knits as candles are lit at nightfall, enjoying the taste and smell of locally foraged wild botanicals against the sound of crashing waves and whistling wind.

The home becomes an intimate and sacred space for wonderment, dreaming and spirituality. Taking inspiration from the night sky; dark, rich tones and shimmering particles encourage introspection and a quest for magic. There is comfort in dreaming about the world beyond the everyday, as we look up to admire the mystery of the vast cosmos, inspiring celestial motifs and symbolic markings.

This trend indicates a transition towards contemporary Oriental references in design. Throwing open the doors to the first spring of a new decade, the Japanese concept of Ikigai inspires us to focus on the things that give meaning to life.

An harmonious, nature-inspired palette pairs well with soft patterning and smooth, silky textures.

Home decoration is approached with a frivolous attitude; focusing on having fun. Design must be unusual, eye catching and more than anything, Instagrammable. This trend is all about exuberance, friendship and not taking life too seriously.
