A box of two candles made of natural sumac (HAZE) wax. Each piece is hand-made by the master craftsmen at DAIYO in Shiga Prefecture using 100% natural materials. 

The candle wick is hollow and made of washi paper, rush weeds, and silk fibers. A piece of washi paper is first rolled and wrapped with rush weeds. Silk fibers are then used to hold the weeds in place.

Burns with a larger flame than conventional candles. As only natural ingredients are used, less soot and odor can be expected upon extinguishing.

Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. Artisanship has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Shiga prefecture is home to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, and an abundance of natural resources. Consequently, Shiga has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the coexistence of man and nature. Daiyo’s Japanese candles are 100% made from natural plant wax. The principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since their establishment more than a century ago.
