Urushi Karakami -Japanese lacquer-


Our Karakami is produced by traditional methods. The patterns are printed using the woodblocks with natural paints and rub with the palms of the hands. 

We developed Urushi Karakami as the new material which expresses a deep glossy pattern peculiar to lacquer.

The mat finish of Japanese traditional Washi paper and luster pattern makes the vivid contrast.

 The unevenness of the pattern, which can be seen through the glossy lacquer, gives each piece a different look and creates a profound feeling in the space.

The color and luster of Urushi changes brighter and it becomes more transparent over time, 

Please enjoy the special texture of hand-made lacquer.

According to your choice of pattern and color, we will make one by one as your request.
