THE CROWDFUNDING PUBLISHING PROJECT

Our activities and why we decided to launch this project

We eschewed the idea of clinging to the old ways, and adopted as our motto: Preservation and Innovation, which became the basis of our collaborations in the U.S. Some notable examples are urushi and chocolate, and urushi and cosmetics. Urushi need not be a craft of bygone days; it has a place in contemporary times. We want to share with you all the new ways in which this ancient craft can come to life, along with its long history and its value in Japanese society.

INHERITANCE AND INNOVATION: OUR MISSION

Yamada Heiando opened its first lacquerware boutique in 1919. We are a proud purveyer of tableware to the Japanese Imperial Household, and our products regularly appear in Japan’s international embassies. Yamada Heiando cherishes the rich tradition of lacquerware as well as the skills and universal aesthetic sensibility that we have inherited from traditional artisans. At the same time, we dedicate ourselves to the design of new products that capture the values of contemporary life.It would be our honor if you could sense the tradition through Urushi, the extraordinary natural lacquer painting, cherish the Japanese culture, and enrich your lifestyle with our products.
