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.
