  • It is said that lacquer becomes hardest 100 years after it is applied, so it takes many years to harden completely. “Echizen Kataurushi” is a dishwasher-resistant lacquer that has achieved a hard coating film through the industry-academia-government collaboration with Fukui Prefecture and Fukui University. The “Ichijo wan”, which are crafted in the traditional shape, and the “Asakura wan”, which have a curved edge, are available in two sizes (about 12.1cm; 4 sun and about 13.6cm; 4.5 sun) and two colors (black and vermilion). It is characterized by its higher heat resistance and durability, more so than many other conventional lacquerwares. In this regard, it is a staple product for the dining table.

About Shitsurindo:

Since its establishment in 1793, Shitsurindo has been carrying on the production of Echizen lacquerware as a lacquerer and has continued to pass on its techniques to the present day.

Echizen is the oldest lacquerware production area in Japan.
The reason why lacquerware production has been flourishing in this area for a long time is due to its humid and cloudy climate as well as a fine division of labor between family members and local people producing the lacquerware.

Echizen lacquerwares are not only a traditional craft, but also daily products. They continue to spare no effort in producing lacquerware where both beauty and robustness are united.That is the eternal pride of Shitsurindo’s craftmanship.
