UME produces premium grade natural incense sticks and handmade incense holders, using only materials that are natural and sustainable and do no harm to nature or our planet .
The company began in 2011, after Founder Emma Leafe spent time travelling the world, her travels became a deeply healing journey. During that time she visited many beautiful and sacred places, from temples to teahouses and was able to see first hand how raw scents can change your experience of a place, the surroundings and the culture. She wanted to explore the art of making incense, and use what she had learnt to create her own beautiful blends and accessories.
Each of these incense holders are hand thrown, using natural red or grey stoneware and glazed with either black or ivory glaze. The beauty of using these natural materials is that no two products are the same and they become even more beautiful in their uniqueness.
