Floral Painted Candles 12 Month Set (special)
Perfect for a special box set ready to be gifted, we now have the beautiful floral painted candles in a set of 12 - each one represents seasonal flower/plant from each month of the year. These vegan candles (made with 100% rice bran wax) are hand crafted by Daiyo in Shiga prefecture using the traditional techniques and flowers are exclusively hand painted by a master artisan who works on the special Kiyomizu-yaki wares in Kyoto. Candles are made using natural rice bran wax and the pair comes in a fine paper box with "E-rousoku" (meaning "floral painted candles") printed in a beautiful Japanese font.
Floral painted candles are originated in Tohoku, during the harsh winter when it used to be very hard to get fresh flowers people started to paint flowers on the candles and used them for the buddhist altar at their homes as alternatives to fresh flowers.
These candles are perfect to use as decoration, as alternatives to flowers in the hot summer season, or as special gift to special someone.
Traditional Japanese candles are completely handmade and give very little smoke, drip and a brighter light than modern paraffin candles.
