Takazawa Candle, Nanao T


These Japanese candles are made from a plant-based wax, such as the fruits of sumac tree, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil since 1892. The wick is made by winding dried rushes around hollow cord of wa-shi, Japanese paper. The hollow core of the wick allows oxygen to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus increasing the combustion power and creating a powerful flame. The unique phenomenon of a flame that flickers even without the presence of wind also means that the candle will not easily go out.
