Candle Gift Set II
I've put together a small range of exclusive gift sets. This gift set brings together everything you need to take part in the home ritual of burning candles. Save while you spoil someone special, or yourself.
Takazawa Candle was established in 1892, being one of the oldest candle makers in Japan. They produce traditional handmade candles derived from plant-based raw materials, using techniques that haven't changed since the 16th century.
These candles have a tall intense flame, burning brighter than most modern paraffin candles – due to the wicks composition of dried reed wrapped around a washi paper cylinder. They also let off less soot and smoke, due to their plant-based materials.
Tohaku candles are handmade from Japanese wax (Haze), which is cultivated from the fruit of trees grown in Chikugo, Fukuoka Prefecture. Due to each piece being made from natural Haze wax, candles come in an array of soft colours, such as, off white, muted grey and muted ochre.
These petite coasters are the perfect size to be used as a base for your special candles, etc. The fabric colour is achieved by the yarns being naturally dyed with Japanese persimmon (kakishibu-zome), ink (sumi-zome), and Japanese indigo (aizome). These dye processes are traditional Japanese dyeing techniques. The result is a beautiful and sophisticated hue.
A naturally occurring crinkle is present within these coasters due to high twist yarns. No ironing needed.
For some seventy years, Takada's artisans have been handcrafting tawashi one at a time, using only the finest, carefully-selected materials harvested from trees cultivated in Wakayama Prefecture, southwestern Japan. Each palm brush is made using waterproof yet gentle windmill palm fibers (shuro). This small sasara tawashi is ideal for brushing leftover ash off the koma candle stand after a candle has finished burning.
