Rice Wax Japanese Candles
Perfect for adding to a quiet night, the bright flame of this candle is sure to create an intimate and comforting atmosphere.
Completely handmade and giving off very little smoke and drip, along with a brighter flame than modern paraffin candles, these candles are made with 100% rice bran wax using traditional techniques. Unscented, no color added, and made with 100% vegetable-based materials.
With a hundred years of history behind them, DAIYO is committed to make genuine Japanese candles with 100% vegetable wax. Established in Shiga prefecture in 1914, DAIYO candles are handcrafted by artisans using a traditional technique called “Tegake.” “Tegake” is a procedure in which the wax is applied on the wick with bare hands and dried, with the process being repeated several times--in candles made by using Tegake, you can see the number of layers around the wick. With conditions such as atmosphere, temperature, and even physical and mental condition of the craftsman affecting the application of the wax, it is crucial to be in the “now” when making candles using Tegake. It takes about 10 years to become a veteran craftsman of Japanese candles, signifying the ability to manage a variety of situations and make candles of consistent quality--it is through these techniques that DAIYO makes their candles. By using all natural material, the flames of their candles burn stably and beautifully, without excess dripping wax, and are earth friendly as well.
