Takazawa from Nanao have been making traditional Japanese Candles since 1892. Founded by Noto Nanao, Takazawa Candle Co. has been creating plant based wax candles for the past century using traditional "wa-rousoku" techniques.
The candles are unique for their hollow washi paper wicks, allowing them to produce a tall flames with a bright quality.
“Nanao” candles are designed with a curved-line motif inspired by the shapes of the fauna of the Noto Peninsula, including bamboo, nuts and plants. These candles keep to the original materials and procedures used in making Japanese candles while incorporating a modern design. We hope you will enjoy the softly-swaying flame.
