TOHAKU Candle

$ 30.00 USD

If you were to close your eyes and picture an ideal environment for meditation or quiet relaxation, a TOHAKU Candle would fit the scene perfectly. This unscented candle's minimalist design is eye-catching yet unobtrusive, and its hollow wick - made from dried rushes wrapped around a washi paper core - produces an extra-bright flame. Each candle also features a hole in the base to help secure it to a candle stand.

Please note that the medium size comes as a set of two candles. Candle stand sold separately.

Designed for use with the KOMA Candle Stand. See the full Takazawa Candle collection here.
