Long awaited low-allergenic Urushi is finally available! This product is much safer than other traditional Japanese Urushi lacquers.
Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi) is the Japanese art of using lacquer, mixed with silver, gold, or metalic powders to repair broken pottery/porcelain. The philosophy behind this technique is to treat the repair as part of the object’s history as opposed to treating the repair as something to hide as if it never happened.
You will repair in a traditional method using real urushi lacquers, without using an artificial glue.
With our kit, you will experience a very traditional method using real urushi lacquers, not with any artificial glues.
