Maki-e is a highly respected traditional Japanese hand-applied decoration process with more than 1500 years of history. It is regarded as the ultimate Japanese decorative craft on many different materials. Precious materials such as Gold, Silver, Enamel, Abalone shell (mother of pearl) etc. are combined and applied by hand by specialized accredited Maki-e artists, with traditional Urushi lacquers to represent a variety of traditional Japanese art, and culture. These very traditional Kaga-Maki-e techniques can only be applied by truly experienced Japanese craftsman who have historical family skills and pride, who have trained for many years to learn such traditional art forms and true craftsmanship.
