I am Guillermo Vela and I started lavelaa as a way to destress from my days working in education. Candle making, for me, began as a hobby and I decided to take it a step further by starting lavelaa. We are a small, Mexican-American/LGBTQIA+ owned business. Both Michael and I are from small Texas towns and have found ourselves in Denver for our careers.

We are slowly building our stock and hope to be in Denver farmer’s markets soon! For now, all our candles are available on our website and Etsy!

As a way to give back to our community, we will be using fifty cents from every candle we sell to make and hand-deliver food to people in need.
