Kome-no-megumi Candle Gift Set (set of 20)
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. Producing traditional handmade candles derived from plant-based raw materials, using techniques that haven't changed since 16th century.
Kome-no-megumi means the blessing of rice. Rice has been the staple food of Japan since antiquity. These candles are made with rice bran wax. They 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.
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.
Each gift set includes:
- x1 kome-no-megumi rice wax candles (set of 20), x1 Koma Candle Stand - Small, and x1 pack of Small Coasters (set of two).
