Starting from Hakuichi,
History of Kanazawa leaf crafts.


Kanazawa's Higashi Chaya District

Kanazawa leaf has been used as a material for Buddhist altars and maki-e for most of its nearly 450-year history. Its value as a craft was recognized in 1975, when Hakuichi created the first craft in Japan that featured Kanazawa foil and named it Kanazawa foil craft. We wanted to spread the appeal of this beautiful Kanazawa leaf, so we started making crafts with our own hands.
