The Ancient Japanese Aesthetic Of Sustainable Upcycling

The Kintsugi Labo JAPAN brings you the sustainable world view that is not “good as new”, but “better than new”.
Our Kintsugi is a Contemporary Art that reconnects a world that has been divided.

The ancient Japanese aesthetic of celebrating the beauty of imperfection and honoring the history of an object is artfully brought to life in the broken pottery.

What's Kintsugi?

"金継ぎ" 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.

Our Favorite

Korai tea bowls are so valuable that many of them have been designated as cultural assets in Japan.
This Kintsugi pottery is a gem of a vessel filled with the Wabi aesthetic sense prized by tea enthusiasts of the Muromachi period (1336-1573) and a perfect fusion of traditional Kintsugi.
Why not contemplate history with a bowl representing the essence of Wabi sabi?

Our Kintsugi Philosophy & initiatives

Earth and Kintsugi Works

Upcycled for Earth

Join us the sustained initiatives to save valuable Japanese broken pottery.

Breaking the vessels on purpose to create Kintsugi pieces? Not at all!
With the aim of creating a sustainable art and keeping with the spirit of Kintsugi, the art of cherishing things, we collect originally valuable, but broken vessels from the kilns and wholesalers of ceramics across Japan that would otherwise be discarded.
All the vessels are valuable with hand painted or handmade, not readily available overseas.
Your participation will complete this sustainability initiative.
Time-honored vessels, beautifully brought to life by traditional Kintsugi, are eagerly awaiting to meet their new owners!
