since 1892, Takazawa Candle has been providing the candlelight in harmony with nature.
hand made in Nanao, Japan with techniques spanning decades, each candle is derived from plants such as the fruits of the sumac tree, rice bran, and rapeseed flower.
their candles' flames are bigger and brighter than others. the flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century, and it's the symbol of ancestral wisdom. at a time when there were no electric lights, light means candles, much thought was put into making the candlelight brighter. the wick is made from plant-based materials such as dried rush and washi-paper, symbolising the beautiful relationship between their ancestors and nature.
