Match Candle / candle

Match Candle
Match Candle

We need extra tools like matches or lighters to light up candles. But what if there is no such tool at hand?
We believe that candle and match can make a perfect couple when the wick-head of the candle is made to be the same as a match-head, and the candler, with a striking surface enclosed to its bottom. In this way, even without any additional fire brand, candles can be lit up.
Have a try on the brand new method of lighting up your candles!
