Living with Lacquerware

Yamanaka, Japan, boasts a rich history steeped in the traditional crafts of woodwork and lacquerware. Renowned for its expertise in woodworking, Yamanaka has been a hub for artisans crafting exquisite wooden items for centuries - such as Rokurobiki. The region's mastery in woodworking dates back to the Edo period, where skilled craftsmen honed their techniques, creating functional yet beautifully designed wooden articles.

In tandem with its woodworking legacy, Yamanaka is celebrated for its lacquerware, a meticulous art that involves coating wooden or bamboo items with layers of Fukiurushi lacquer. This craftsmanship has flourished in Yamanaka for over 400 years, with the intricate process passing down through generations. The artisans of Yamanaka are known for creating lacquerware that marries functionality with artistic expression, producing items that are not only utilitarian but also showcase the region's cultural heritage and commitment to craftsmanship.

Brand History

At the heart of the Yamanaka lacquerware is a celebration of people, nature, and culture. By intertwining wooden lacquerware with botanical elements, they approach design through a floral lens, aiming to express the craftsmanship and dedication of these artisans in a unique way. The brand, YUIYU, was born with the intention of bridging traditional crafts with everyday life in the Yamanaka region.

Similar to the evolving texture of lacquerware over time, living with it feels akin to living with plants. Drawing inspiration from nature's organic forms, they craft lacquerware that introduces new shapes and colors, enhancing the joy of its use. Just as over time plants grow and change, the colors of the YUIYU lacquerware matures with age. It is our pleasure to deliver this unique lacquerware experience to you.
