|MATSUI Candle Atelier
Matsui Candle Atelier has been established in 1907, and manufactures traditional Japanese-style candles with environmentally-friendly ingredients. The company exercises particular care in selecting high quality raw materials. Valuable plant-derived Japan waxes, produced in Kyushu and Wakayama , are used for group and cover coats, while rushes are used for the wick. Matsui candles therefore generate minimal soot, are wind resistant, and provide a soft, warm, and gentle light. Half-spent candles collected from temples are recycled to make red candles.
|Matsui Candle Atelier
The MATSUI Candle Atelier has been established in 1907 and Mr. Noriaki Matsui is now one of the approximately 20 craftsman in Japan left to master the skill of handmade, traditional warosoku. MATSUI candles are characterized by delicate lines, beautiful growth ring patterns, and a large and bright flickering flame.
All candles are hand-made and hand-painted by the Matsui family. Whereas Mr. Noriaki is always busy crafting and hand-rolling the rosoku, his daughter Hiriro is in charge of hand painting all the e-rosoku. She designs and decorates each candle and sometimes even adds crystals.
