Interested to know more about who makes these delightful candles? Read on!
Brooklyn based maker, Rino Minami is the founder and owner of Tokyn Candles and hand makes her beautiful creations in her home.
Rino combines her interest in scent memory and passions to create her range of beautiful, sentimental candles and when she designs her candles, she is inspired by many things.
Her inspiration comes from the aromas of native Japan, to the fashion and creativity she witnesses when she visits her hometown.
Rino’s mother is one of the biggest inspirations for her Botanical Collections. This great woman sparked the idea of using dried flowers to add simple but mesmerizing visuals to her candles, and it has worked wonderfully.
The TOKYN Candles Making Process
Let’s take a look at how Rino makes her beautiful collection of botanical soy candles.
Rino likes to source her materials locally. She uses the local flower market in New York to source the botanicals that will encase her candles.
One of her favorite parts in the making process is hand arranging botanicals and other natural elements. This allows her to get creative and give each candle the ‘perfect’ feel it deserves. After this, she will gently encase the botanicals in a clear gel, preserving them.
Rino creates each candle from soy wax, which she melts on a burner before pouring into the center votive to finish off her candle.
These beautiful candles have a quick turn around, and you can expect them to be ready for dispatch in 1-2 working days. That’s great news for those of us who can’t wait to get our hands on them!
