Handmade from 100% rice bran wax, the Rockaku Candles are designed with a hexagonal shape, a symbol of longevity in Japan.

It is made from rice bran wax, making it environmentally friendly and reducing wax dripping and smoke. The hexagonal shape symbolizes balance, harmony, and stability, while the turtle shell pattern symbolizes longevity and good fortune in Japan since ancient times. As the base is produced from rice bran wax and the wick with washi paper and rush weed, the natural ingredients produce little to no smoke and wax drippage. Combined with its short size that can still burn for an hour, it makes these candles perfect for indoor use.

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.
