Art of Lacquer

Lacquer Tree Sap

The stones are the brushes in fine arts and the smoothening process is the way artisans draw the lacquer paintings.


The process of inlaying each piece of eggshell requires carefulness and patience. It might sound a little strange that they orderly arranged in random positions. The eggshell is sometimes shapened to create the painting highlights.


Sketching the details of the painting need to be done entirely manual. The sketching for details might take up to 30 hours to finish.

24Kt Gold & Silver

Pure gold and silver leaves are also used during crafting products. The leaves are quite delicated, therefore, skillfull hands are specifically required.
