KURASHIKI SEIRO Scented Candles

Kurashiki is a candle company founded in 1934, based in Kurashiki, in the Setouchi area of Japan.

The company has always produced hand-made candles for Buddhist and Shinto temples which are used during prayer, they are also for weddings, births, and many other celebrations such as New Years, and holidays.

The factory looks like a 1950's factory with many old machines but they could integrate several new technologies in order to always improve the quality of their production.

Most workers have been with the company for many years: they have all became master-craftsmen and women, producing hand-made candles.

In 2017, after hiring a famous art director to re-think about their collections, Kurashiki launched the "card-candle" collection. There is a special part within the factory which is dedicated to the production of the card-candle: the process is totally hand-made by craftsmen, using silicone moulds.

There are specially scented candle with technology where you light it and leave it for a minute then blow it out and the smoke gives your room a lovely scent. In consideration of the environment, the main material is palm-wax which received RSPO “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil” approval. The card-candles received the "Good Design" Award in Japan in 2018.

Like a stick of gum, one stick of a card candle refreshes your mind in a short time. Stand the candle up on the brass holder and light it up.

The card-candle box includes a brass candle-stand and 5 card-candles.

Burning time approximately : 30min but please do not let the candle burn for 30 minutes long at one time. Its purpose is to light it, let it burn for 10 minutes and blow it out: so the nice smell will surround you; then light it again after a while when the scent has faded.

The purpose of the natural beauty of the candle and the nice smell is to be able to relax your senses after a stressful day.
