TOHAKU Botanical Candles Set {Medium}

Title:  
$ 46.00 USD

TOHAKU is a series of Japanese candles wa-rousoku made from 100% sumac (natural haze plant) wax taken from the fruit of Japanese Ha-ze wax trees in Chikugo region of Kyushu.

This TOHAKU set includes two medium size candles (burn time is approximately 130 minutes each) and one KOMA candle stand (medium), packaged in a fine paulownia wooden box ready and perfect to be gifted. The small size set is also available-->

The candles may look darker colour (as seen in the first picture) when they have just been made but they will start to get whiter in time and will have beautiful look. 

The form of these candles is inspired by a pine forest in the pictures by Tohaku Hasegawa, one of the greatest Japanese painters from Nanao City in Ishikawa prefecture where Takazawa Candle the maker of these candles are based from 1892.

In ancient times, most of the traditional Japanese candles were made from this type of wax but the amount available had decreased rapidly in recent years.
