What is Japanese lacquerware?
Lacquerware, or "urushi" in Japan, is a treasured art form created from the sap of the urushi tree. It stands out for its beauty and practicality, offering a waterproof and acid-resistant finish after an intricate layering and curing process.
Traditional Japanese artisans have ensured over generations that these pieces are not only functional but also meet the highest health standards and are food-safe.
