A customer from Texas U.S.
"There are many shops selling "Kintsugi like" pieces, but The Kintsugi Labo JAPAN is the only shop that I trusted and wanted to buy the authentic Kintsugi pieces from in Japan. Considering not only the stunning Kintsugi techniques, but also the value of the original vessels, I don't think the price range is too expensive. It's very much worth coming here to buy."
