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. *See below for additionl shipping fee.

Caution: Urushi lacquer is actually the sap of a tree that grows in East Asia. It is a natural substance that forms a clear, hard and waterproof surface when dried properly. Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, so please take necessary measures to protect yourself.
 
NOTE: TURPENTINE OIL included in our Kintsugi Repair Kit is now prohibited from export from Japan therefore we cannot ship abroad.
