Back to Brand List
The Echizen Lacquerware of Sabae, Fukui prefecture is a 1,500-year-old tradition. Naoki Morishita believes his mission is to pass down the pride and specialist skills of the craftsmen whose techniques were developed over centuries, and the expression of Japanese beauty inherent in the tradition of Echizen Lacquerware to the next generation. At the same time, Morishita is continually working towards the creation of lacquerware as a ‘New Tradition’ to match the sensibilities and lifestyles of modern society. The extremely high level skills of the artisans and their sincere attitude towards their craft were well acknowledged when KORINDO received the great honor of creating 360 sets of lacquerware for the 1990 banquet held at the enthronement ceremony of the current Emperor.
