"Dýri" is a short for hreindyr, which means reindeer in Icelandic. But it also means beast... so unleash the beast!
The idea of PyroPet came to Thorunn while studying at the Royal College of Art in London in 2011. She joined forces with Dan Koval and they launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance their little startup. The campaign was a great success, in only 4 days they had reached their funding goal and at the end of the campaign they had reached 250% of their initial goal. Thorunn and Dan founded PyroPet Candle Company and are now selling Kisa in shops and galleries all around the world.
