Urushi Jewelry Box

Centuries-old lacquerware craftsmanship meets delicate, timeless creations. A partnership of Japan’s best artisans to give you the world in one magnificent box.

Since the 18th century, Wajima Kirimoto has perfected the art of wood and lacquerware design integral to the Japanese culture for over 14,000 years. Together with Wajima Kirimoto’s time-tested skill and expertise and kataoka’s one-of-a-kind, timeless artistic vision of heirloom jewelry, they have brought to life, over three years of experimentation, the Urushi Jewelry Box; a true collaboration of artisan craft in a uniquely designed box.

With a base made from finely cut Japanese paper expertly covered in smooth, glossy midnight black lacquer from the outside and meticulously hand-polished detailing of imperial red from the inside, the Urushi Jewelry Box is a treasure of unparalleled, incomparable minimalistic elegance worthy of holding everlasting beauties.
