Kome-no-Megumi Candle Set

Kome-no-Megumi means the blessing of rice, and these warosuku (Japanese candles) have been made with rice bran wax.

They’ve been made for us by hand in the Takazawa atelier in Japan, using traditional methods.

The candlemakers use a technique called 'tegake-seiho'. The wick is first made by wrapping a dried reed around a washi paper cylinder, which gives the candle a tall intense flame with minimal smoke. They then build up the candle by rotating the body whilst smoothing over hot wax in layers, before finally shaping the top.

Only a handful of craftspeople can use this method since it takes years to master, and only a small number of candles can be produced in a day.

Made from only natural plant wax, these candles burn brightly and steadily, without excess dripping.

Each candle radiates a soft, warm glow into the home, the perfect lighting for the dinner table, tea ceremonies, yoga and peaceful moments.

Contains 20 pieces, each approx. 7cm tall and with a burn time of 30 minutes. Time to enjoy a cup of coffee, or listen to some of your favourite music.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
