Takazawa Candle

In the age of electric lighting, darkness is a rare thing. The illumination of modern life brings with it constant stimulation, vibrancy, and restlessness. Takazawa Candle use traditional Japanese recipes and candle-making techniques to challenge the modern way, and bring a renewed sense of calm to the home through the humble light of a candle.


Taking influence from the natural world, Takazawa Candle create uniquely shaped candles and candleholders, and breathe new life into an ancient craft. The candlewax is made to an authentic recipe dating from the 16th Century, whilst the wick is made from a combination of washi paper, dried rushes, and silk. The result is a pure and warm light with an even burn.
