The Centuries-Old Japanese Tradition of Mending Broken Ceramics with GoldKintsugi repair is a form of Japanese art, not just a DIY repair method. It has a long history which was practiced by our ancestors from the Edo Era (years: 1603-1868).

Meet the beautiful Japanese Art that helps you repair the broken objects and overcome sadness

Ceramics and pottery are fragile, strong and beautiful all at once, just like people.

During this whole process of Kintsugi Therapy, you learn to become more patient with YOUR SELF, as if you learn how to handle a broken pot, offering the necessary time to mend and repair itself. At the same time, you learn to rebuild yourself and repair your life step by step.

**You can repair 10 to 20 of broken potteries with 1 Kintsugi Repair Kit!

 

Caution: Urushi Lacquer is made from tree sap and it has been used for 9,000 years by Japanese lacquer masters as a glue, putty, or paint. Although Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, proper handling (gloves and long-sleeved shirt), and working in a well-ventilated area will generally prevent an allergic reaction. Mejiro Co. will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to Urushi Lacquer.

Disclaimer: Urushi should be used at your own risk. Mejiro Co. cannot be held responsible for any allergic reactions or medical expenses caused by Urushi or Urushi related products.

    The risk of an allergic reaction is extremely low due to the addition of a special protein substance that coats the Urushi and safeguards it from skin exposure.
