Since 24th of February operations of the business has almost stopped. During occupation of Gostomel by Russian army the workshop was damaged (see the photos). Moreover, it was looted, as Russian soldiers stole technical equipment, instruments and all the candles that were in stock. Moreover, the wooden part of the candles was made in Kharkiv region. This place is still a hot spot at the moment, severe fightings take place there. People that remain there say that the whole production is destroyed, nothing is left.
Therefore, the WOOD MOOD lost almost everything. The teams is now looking for opportunities to restore production in a safer region of Ukraine. WOOD MOOD wishes to stay in Ukraine, create great Ukrainian products and continue working for the domectic economy. Their clients give them inspiration as many said that they put candles in an emergency suitcases, so as to feel like home anywhere in the world.
And WOOD MOOD is a family business, founded by a wife and a husband. Founders have 4 children, from 1 to 8 years old, and they are their main motivation.
WOOD MOOD is happy to send their candles worldwide (few are still in stock, as the team managed to save them).
Moreover, they would be super grateful for donations, as they plan to restore woodworking and production, which requires substantial funds.
