Washi Crinkle Candle


Fresh Crafted Paper

This fragrance evokes an image of freshly hand-crafted Japanese washi paper from a traditional mill nestled deep in the mountains and surrounded by a cedar forest. The ceramic holder, which has been created by celebrated designer Makoto Komatsu, can be used over again in any number of ways. 

The candle is made using only domestically-sourced & plant-based ingredients, which allows them to burn cleaner while also emphasizing the beautiful, delicate scents.

First established in 1808, the company garnered success by being the first in Japan to produce domestically made citrus essences. For this new initiative, Shiono Koryo collaborated with renowned industrial designer Takumi Shimamura, known as the designer behind Tokyo's Hato Bus and DOCOMO mobile phone terminals.
