Product Details

The flame of these candles is bigger and brighter due to the traditional wick which is made of washi-paper, rush weed and silk fiber. The wick is made by wrapping dried plant material around the washi shaped into a cylinder. This design allows air to pass up from the lower part through the wick's hollow center which in turn gives the candle a large, powerful flame.

-traditionally-made since 1892

-sumac wax

-the color may change with time but it does not degrade them in any way

-the flame is bigger and brighter than other candles; please keep burning candles away from furniture, bedding, curtains, books, home decorations, flammable items, etc.

-please make sure the candle cannot fall over; choose a suitable, non-flammable stand

-SINGLE LARGE: 14 cm x 2.4 cm diam (pair with large iron candle stand)

-SET OF FIVE: 12 cm x 2 cm diam (pair with the medium iron candle stand)

- 240 min

-pair with iron candle stand

-pair set of five candles with medium iron stand

-pair single large with large iron stand

-you can adjust the flame size by cutting the burnt part of the wick down

WARNING: candles will melt if if left in warm places. Store them in cool places out of direct sunlight.

-never leave a burning candle unattended

-burn candles out of reach of children and pets

-burning time can be shortened by wind and drafts so keep them out of wind for their long life

-keep candles at least 5 inches from each other

-recommended to break the black part of the wick off by a snuffer/trimmer; the long wick will make a candle burn quickly and flame burn too high; using a snuffer prevents drops of wax on tablecloths, clothing, etc.; if you do not have a snuffer, cover the flame with a spoon and take it off when you find white smoke

The traditional craftsmanship includes starting the day at 5am in the winter and 6am in the summer by lighting fires under the kettles to melt the wax. The fire is created using timber that has been thinned from nearby forests. They use three big pots and three small kettles to melt the raw wax from the fruit of the Japanese wax tree. The wax tree is harvested, ground and boiled to extract the wax. The melted wax is poured into wooden or metallic molds and then finished shaping by hand with a small knife. By using natural materials, the survival of traditional technologies and the conservation of the Japanese mountains, plants and nature is possible.
