Hideichi Kuwata, an 86 year old master calligrapher from Hokkaido Japan is the artist behind our candle design. He is one of a few living Japanese master calligraphy artists to date, lending his rare art and beautiful calligraphy in our candle collection. Each candle is inspired by Kuwata-san's pristine brushwork. The label design is replicated from his exclusive and extravagant artwork, preserving his timeless art masterpiece in our candle collection.

 Deeply rooted in Japanese culture, the Arigato lifestyle is honored and practiced for generations. It is the art of giving thanks that stems from filial piety, charity and the utmost reverence as stewards of the land and of each other. Arigato philosophy is evidenced in every aspect of Japanese lifestyle, from tea ceremony, to upholding cleanliness in public spaces, from honoring and respecting the elderly, to devoting oneself to the highest artistic craftmanship at the pleasure of the beholder. Arigato is a celebration of life, love and friendship. It is an offering of thanksgiving, that transcends language and geography. We craft beautiful products that celebrate the art of Arigato with kindness and compassion. We collaborate with today’s tastemakers and gamechangers to create a one-of-a-kind social club with our gifting lounge where you can  experience firsthand the art of Arigato. It is not a lifestyle. It is a way of life. We’re glad you’re on this journey with us. From our hearts to yours, Arigato … with love!
