Have Kanazawa’s Traditional Craft of “Kanazawa Gold Leaf” Much Closer to You
We humbly suggest the new lifestyle to enjoy the heart-enriching beauty of gold leaf in your daily life with the inherited tradition of Kanazawa.
Japanese Bush Warbler
A bird obscurely sitting by blossoms is depicted in the Kanazawa Gold Leaf background. The small bird and cherry blossoms are drawn by our proprietary decoration technique called “heaped up surihaku leaf”. Makes the perfect gift to celebrate the important milestone or for overseas friends.
Spring Moon through the Mist
Series of delicately thin tableware that is not only beautiful but matches the modern lifestyle. The depiction of the spring moon seen through the mist with the “metal leaf” turns the wood grains into the authentic background with the compressed beauty. The series marks the birth of the practical beauty.
Kanazawa Gold-leafed Folding Fan
Folding fans made exclusively with the domestic materials and traditional technique. The grass paper decoration technique for ancient Japanese poem books and tanzaku strips as well as folding screens and the painting method for Japanese-style paintings made this series of delightful articles.
