Light a spark with this set of three minimal, nature-inspired matchbooks!
This trio of candle matchboxes features three simple patterns evocative of lotus blossoms, mountain peaks, and an alpine meadow in shades of blue, grey, and green. The three designs pay homage to a traditional Japanese bookbinding technique known as stab binding, which uses woven thread in decorative motifs to hold the pages of a book together. Each matchbook has a subtle linen texture print overlaid on the design, evoking the feel of a beloved cloth-bound book.
This set of three special, oversized matchboxes makes unique and memorable gifts for explorers, nature lovers, travelers, campers, hikers, backpackers, nomads, wanderers, book lovers, book binders, artists, designers, or anyone with an imaginative soul. Pairs perfectly with a candle. Get one for yourself too and place it next to your bath tub, favorite reading spot, or on your mantle for candle-lit relaxation... Give one as a gift to a fellow lotus blossom lover...
You can find each matchbox offered individually at these listings:
These matchboxes are a larger size (4 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 3/4"), and each one contains about 60 white-tipped safety matches that are 4" long. A generous striker strip is located on the right hand side of each box, like the pages of a book. The sliding inner match drawer color adds a subtle bit of matte champagne gold. As always, well-designed and well-crafted.
Note: International orders are shipped without matches in the boxes. All US orders containing matches are shipped by ground.
