TAKAZAWA CANDLE manufactures traditional Japanese candles called "WA-ROUSOKU" made from natural waxes. They started their candle making business back in 1892 in the city of Nanao, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan.
Various types of wax are used for the candles, which are obtained from plant raw materials: fruits of the HAZE tree (sumac), rice bran, rapeseed oil and fruits of the URUSHI tree. The natural energy stored in these plants is used when burning these candles, making them eco-friendly. When they go out, the candles release less soot and less unpleasant smell thanks to the natural, vegetable waxes.
The flame of TAKAZAWA candles is larger and brighter. This is due to the structure of the traditional wick, which is thicker in diameter than its western counterpart. The wick is made from a combination of WASHI paper, rush grass and silk fibers that are also naturally derived.
