F/style Japanese Candles
These traditional Japanese candles have an hour and a half burn time. Made out of natural oils and paraffin wax, the flame from these candles is almost entirely smoke-free. This style of candle making, with a hollow center that allows for a longer and brighter flame, was invented in 16th century Japan. Two candles are included in each purchase.
Each candle is handmade and will appear slightly different.
Emi Igarashi and Wakano Hoshino, both born in Niigata Japan, co-founded the brand 'F/style' in 2001. By focusing on the art of making things, or "monozukuri" in Japanese, F/style's mission is to re-popularize ancient Japanese craft by applying them to new and contemporary designs that fit within a wide-range of aesthetics. Based in their hometown of Niigata Japan, F/style creates made-to-last pieces, that are thoughtfully designed for the home and for personal use. The story behind shina crafts starts with early ancient man, and records show that Japan's indigenous Ainu people were one of the first groups to use shina in daily life. Currently only 3 towns in Japan continues to craft with shina, and F/style focuses on just 1 village in Niigata for their shina products.
