Sparkles of Gold Leaf,
Appearing & Disappearing.

Ultra thin layers of gold leaves will emerge when light shines in the perfect angle.

Such delicate trick is what gives it three-dimensional effect of traditional Japanese Art.

◀ Roll over for the light effect.

Quintessence of Traditional Techniques, in Pursuit of Quality.

Sparkling MAKI-E Gilding with
Ultrafine Gold Powders.

  • A renowned decoration technique in Japan's lacquerware creation, MAKI-E gilding applies gold in multiple yet thin layers. We draw pictures by sprinkling ultrafine gold powders over wet lacquer.

    What characterises our MAKI-E gilding is its soothing touch, made possible with our wide variety of gold powders. We have more than 300 variations in total, each with different nuance in size, thickness, and form.

    They have been hammered out from solid gold to 1-1.2/10,000mm, so thin that it lets light shine right through.

  • MAKI-E gilding can be classified further depending on how they are finished: HIRA MAKI-E for a flat finish and TAKA MAKI-E for a high finish.

    In flat HIRA MAKI-E, the design is first drawn on a special tracing paper and then traced onto the undercoated surface in golden lacquer. Various types of fine paint brushes are used, so that gold powders will adhere evenly when sprinkled over.

    The glittering particles are to be put more than thoroughly in multiple sizes, from 0.005mm to 0.3mm in diameter, to ensure complete coverage.

    It is only with artisans' exceptional skills to spread lacquer thin and powders uniform that the whole surface stays flat. Smooth to the touch but stunning to the eyes, powdered and plain areas become borderless.

  • Once the lacquer has been dried off in a chamber and excess gold is removed with a soft cotton ball, a clear outline of the design comes up to the surface.

    The sparkling powders are to be covered with additional coats of finishing lacquer, to give the final gloss as well as to protect them from falling off. These coating layers are done extremely thin that the powders' gold texture is still tangible.

    At last, elaborate design features, including veins of leaves or filaments of flowers, are drawn on the gold powders with thin lines of matching coloured lacquer.

  • High TAKA MAKI-E follows basically the same process, except that it has an additional step in the initial design tracing. After painting the design onto the undercoated surface, gold foils are cut in precise patterns and pasted to enhance the design in high relief.

    The surface is then covered with layers of golden lacquer, sparkling powders in the same colour, and finishing lacquer to reflect the glitter of light.

    TAKA MAKI-E is what makes the design three-dimensional, one distinguishing characteristic of traditional Japanese Art.

URUSHI Lacquer Coating,
Highly Rare and 100% Ecological.

  • URUSHI lacquer is a 100% ecological coating material made from sap of special trees (Rhus Verniciflua). One tree can produce 200ml sap at most in a lifetime, which makes it highly rare.

    The history goes back as far as 3.4 million years to the Stone Age, when URUSHI lacquer was used as an adhesive in Asia. With high resistance even to acid and alkali and a natural tendency to solidify at room temperature, the 100% ecological coating has developed suitable for daily use.

  • It was the Japanese, however, that first recognised the beauty inherent in lacquerware.

    URUSHI lacquer trees may grow in other Asian countries, but Japanese ones are famous for containing the most amount of sparkling component (It is named in Japanese, Urushiol.). Our URUSHI lacquer has 65-70% of shining urushiol in comparison to others' 5-10%.

    The perfectly smooth surface, reflecting the light and sparkling vivid colours. We refined the coating technique to the level where it became nothing but art.

  • Black
    from Nature

    The deep black colour is made by blending clear URUSHI lacquer with mineral-based pigments.
