The Brighton brand was founded by Jerry and Terri Kohl, who envisioned a different kind of company that would be built from the heart - focused on treating our customers and employees the way they love to be treated. We launched Brighton in 1991 with a single collection of belts. Over the years, it has evolved into an extensive line of stylish products that accessorize women from head to toe. You'll find our products at over 180 Brighton Collectible stores and in over 4,000 fine specialty boutiques or online.
Our company prides itself on the "Brighton Difference," which is rooted in the belief that the difference is in the details. Brighton is one of the few design houses where our own designers sketch each creation by hand and then follow the product from concept to fruition. It's a traditional process that has been practiced for centuries - yet the accessories themselves are always fashion-relevant and timeless works of art.
Brighton's philosophy is simple, yet it is intertwined in everything we do - from creating beautiful accessories with lasting quality to treating each customer as if they were the only customer. We believe in, and practice, making everyone feel as special as they truly are. We have a lot of heart at Brighton - and we're a pretty passionate team. We hope you find our passion contagious...and follow your heart to Brighton.

What are the basic tips for burning Tyler Candle Company candles?
Never leave a burning candle unattended. Please remember that a lit candle is fire, and keep out of reach of children and pets.
1.Place your candle on a heat-resistant surface.
2.Make sure that you trim the candle’s wicks to ¼” each and every time before you light your candle.
3.Always burn your candle in a draft-free area. Any draft of wind (ceiling fans, A/C vents, windows, etc.) will make the candle flame flicker and smoke.
4.When you are trimming your candle wicks, be sure to remove all wick trimmings and debris.
5.Always burn votives in an appropriate votive holder.
6.Ensure that there is enough air space around your candle. Do not burn under a shelf, as this will inhibit the amount of oxygen that is getting to the wick of the candle and can cause the candle to not burn properly.
7.Discontinue use of the candle when ½” of wax remains. Burning past this point can present a fire hazard and cause the glass to break.
After burning my candle my wick has a “mushroom”-type head on it. What is this?
This is a “fragrance mushroom”, which is found on high quality, high performance, fragranced candles. This must be removed before relighting the candle by trimming the wick to ¼” and by removing any of the mushroom head and debris. Please remember to allow the candle to completely harden & cool before attempting to trim the wi
My candle has been burning for several hours and I can see smoke coming from the wick. What should I do?
This means that the candle has been burning too long. You should extinguish the candle, allow it to cool, and trim the wick to ¼”. The wick needing to be trimmed usually causes smoking from a wick. This is also the case if you just lit a candle and see it smoking or “popping”. If your wick is already trimmed to ¼”, check to make sure that your candle is not being burned in a draft. Many different things can cause this. A/C vents, ceiling fans, windows and even doorways can create a draft, and can cause your candle to not burn properly.
What is the appropriate length of time to burn my candle?
·Votives – 1 ½–2 hours
·3.4 oz Prestige Candle – 1–2 hours
·11 oz Prestige Candle – 2–3 hours
·22 oz Prestige Candle – 2–3 hours
·Stature Jar Candle – 2–3 hours
My candle is leaving a lot of wax on the sides of the container as I burn it. Is this normal?
This is commonly called “tunneling”, and is caused when on the first burn of the candle it is extinguished before a full melt pool is achieved. To get a full melt pool on any candle, it should be burned for a minimum of one hour for every inch the candle is in diameter. Most waxes have a “memory”, and if a candle is extinguished before a full melt pool is achieved on the first burn, the subsequent melt pools will not go past this first burn ring
Do Tyler Candle Company wicks contain lead?

One of the most respected names in women’s apparel today, Karen Kane has become truly synonymous with style, comfort, and sophistication. That distinction comes from the brand’s namesake and chief designer.

Corporate showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas assist with sales, as do many retail representatives across the country.
While trends have changed since Karen launched her first collection, her approach and personal philosophy toward fashion has never wavered. She designs with ease, luxury, and longevity in mind. Her inspiration comes from that which is closest to her soul – the California Coast she has long called her home, the city streets she and her co-workers navigates each day, and of course, her family.

Itching to expand her horizons beyond theater direction and acting, Gita Zeltzer began conceptualizing XCVI in the mid 1990s. She was influenced by the multi-layered cultural element of Los Angeles, California, and she saw the “urban chaos” as a muse.
Gita was inspired by the spirit of what others considered “everyday.” In creating XCVI, she discovered that contemporary fashion was a new and dynamic space for her artistic expression.
It was in 1996 (or XCVI, in roman numerals) that Gita introduced the first season of XCVI from a storefront on the famed Melrose Avenue. The success of the line and its ability to resonate with so many types of people demanded that the team hire another designer to keep up with demand.
Gita, together with designer Lilia Gorodnitski, manifested a shared vision: to develop wearable, moveable, breathable clothing for women who believe in style, but also believe in comfort. Today, XCVI is a cut-to-order operation, and works with retailers all over the world.
