Urushi’s deep shiny lustre, soft quality and resilience and durability has made it an integral part of the Japanese lifestyle for thousands of years. It has been used on everything from tableware to furniture, tea ceremony tools, and buddhist temple altars. Urushi (Japanese lacquer) is the sap of the Urushi tree that is native to Japan. It is a natural, living substance that contains no artificial chemicals. When applied in thin coats it hardens to form an extremely strong durable coating that will last a lifetime with care.
