Every piece is made by hand with a traditional technique called ” tsuishitsu” .
Painting lacquer over and over for 200-300 layers. Wearing tradition with elegance
being the concept, introducing jewelry that enables you to feel the glamour of lacquer.]
In tsuishitsu, an artist would carefully brush layers of lacquer to create a sheet of pure lacquer. This sheet is then carved, scraped, and polished multiple times to expose the beautiful layers of colored lacquer.
Because lacquer takes a very long time to dry, only one layer can be brushed onto the lacquer
base each day. It needs 100 coatings to achieve a thickness of just 3 millimeters. An artist must build the lacquer coating a little bit at a time each day, so it takes about a year to prepare one sheet of layered lacquer with carvable thickness.
