Our Kintsugi Kit real Ki-Urushi and E-Urushi, 24k gold powder, tonoko and more. The repair done with our Kit doesn't just last, it is also food safe and can be used with hot liquids. If you ever run out of materials you can also buy them separately at any time. The Kit has been created in collaboration with masters of Kintsugi and Urushi artisans to bring you the best materials directly from Japan.
We've collaborated with Takeda Kahei to bring you this authentic Shibori (aka Tie Dyeing) Kit. Takeda Kahei is located in Arimatsu, a town that served as the center of Japanese Shibori over 380 years and the Takeda family has been the anchor throughout its history. The Kit not only includes Indigo dye (aka Aizome) as well as a large eco-bag called "Azuma Bukuro", a bag shape that has been around for centuries but is timeless and beautiful as ever.
While Urushi is the foundation for the famous Kintsugi repair, it can be used to protect and upgrade various materials. Fukiurushi is the most approachable way to apply the lacquer simply by putting a small amount on cloth and applying by wiping the cloth on the surface. Hardened urushi lacquer forms a protective waterproof coating that repels mold and mildew, and also prevents rotting and weathering.
