The Candlemakers of Nanao

Operating from the same factory since 1892, our artisan partners from Nanao have been perfecting their craft for hundreds of years, committed to preserving the wisdom and ingenuity of traditional Japanese candle making. 

For centuries, these candlemakers have been designing traditional Japanese candles, also known as 'warosoku’, with the natural world in mind. These timeless pieces are derived from plant-based raw materials such as Sumac wax, harvested from the fruit of the Japanese Haze tree. The clean-burning candles are created in unique shapes inspired by the plants that grow in the region where they are made.

There are three important elements in making traditional Japanese candles: craftsmanship, plant-sourced raw materials, and a commitment to social contribution.” - Yoichi Tamaki
