In his family, Master Tarou Omori represents the sixth generation of craftsmen specialized in the manufacture of traditional Japanese candles. His workshop is located in Ehime Prefecture on Shikuko Island. Since the end of the Edo period, this region has flourished thanks to the manufacture of Japanese paper (Washi) and the production of natural Japanese wax (Warou) extracted from the tallow tree. The techniques used in Master Oumori's workshop are inherited from this period, and the family continues to preserve the manufacturing secrets of these unique traditional candles, hand-made one by one with the greatest care. The manufacturing process testifies to the technicality and intuition of the craftsmen, developed and refined over many years.
