Warousoku - Japanese Candles
'Wa-rousoku' literally means "Japanese Candles". All of these candles selected at Uguisu are made with 100% plant-derived materials such as 'HAZE' -laquer tree seed wax- and 'NUKA' -rice bran wax- and washi paper for the core. What we call Genuine Traditional Ha-ze candles are made using the techniques and materials that have not changed since 16th century and today they are made by only a handful of Japanese craftsmen. Other candles are also handmade but they are made using casts so they can be produced in larger quantities while Genuine Traditional Ha-ze sumac candles can be produced only in limited quantities. All these Japanese vegan candles give very little soot and burn with larger and brighter flame compared to paraffin candles.
