Veleiro gets its name from the Portuguese word ‘vela’ which translates to both ‘candle’ and ‘sail’, perfectly suiting the design.

The wooden base can hold matches or any small stuff, while the metal lid features a triangular flap with prongs that hold the candle in place. That same part is what’s used to carry the candle holder around if you need to move it.
