What's Kintsugi?

Kintsugi is a unique Japanese technique in which broken vessels are repaired using urushi (Japanese lacquer). In Japan, imperfections such as cracks and stains on vessels are considered to create value. The typical way of thinking is that broken vessels must be discarded. However, we believe upcycling gives new life to such vessels and enriches the lives of those who use them. By reviving the spirit of the craftsman, who has poured his or her time into the piece, the vessels can be upcycled rather than being thrown away. This is what modern, sustainable luxury is all about. We hope that you, too, see the beauty in Kintsugi, a practice which conveys the Japanese spirit.
