Box of Rice Wax Candles
A box of small, handmade Japanese candles. Made from 100% natural rice wax which burns stably and beautifully without excess dripping wax. Each piece is personally handmade by the master craftsmen at Daiyo in Shiga prefecture using natural, vegetable materials. It is said that there are only 10 true masters of candle-making in the whole of Japan.
Daiyo with one hundred years of history is committed to making genuine Japanese candles with 100% vegetable wax. As the material used is all natural, it burns stably without excess dripping wax and is environmentally sustainable as well. The wax is harvested from the sumac trees called Haze, which originally came from Ryukyu (Okinawa) in the Edo period (1603 - 1868). The Haze trees are found particularly in the Western Japan and have been bred to be most suitable for candle-making.
