IKARI Candle (1 piece) 240mins
In our search for a plant-based candle, we were completely enchanted by this IKARI candle by the good folks at Takazawa Candle. Its compelling 'anchor shape' was the main hook - the heavy top with a wide rim and a narrow base allows the candle is designed to create a large flame quickly as well as preventing wax from dripping down the candle. The nature of its beauty and function is in the wick that's made from a 16th century recipe of dried rush and washi, then shaped with sumac wax which has a soft natural scent.
The IKARI honours a traditional Japanese candle-making technique that produces a longer lasting and brigher candlelight that we can continue to enjoy today.
