what is "musubi"?

Musubi むすび is the hand-tied knot on each of our tokyn candles. The art of knotting has a long history in Japan with different knots attributed for different occasions. The particular knot on our TOKYN candles symbolizes the unity and strong bond between people. This "awaji" knot is often incorporated in wedding gifts or other celebratory moments to wish for continued success, happiness and good fortune. 

TOKYN’s mission is to create and share this beautiful message of connecting people’s hearts by bridging together the rich Japanese custom of “Musubi” with Brooklyn’s undeniable charm and eclectic flair through our candles.
