Takazawa Candle

From Japan
Founded in 1996

Today, only a handful of craftsmen remain making warousoku candles, and Takazawa Candle Company is carrying on the tradition. The candles are crafted from different plant waxes, and the wick is made by wrapping a dried reed around a washi paper cylinder, giving the candle its characteristic tall, high-intensity flame with minimal smoke. Though these candles are so traditional, they are acutely modern, with their strong graphic shapes and colours.
