Since the company was established in 1900, URUSHI SAKAMOTO in Aizu
Wakamatsu, Japan, has created numerous and varied fine lacquer (urushi)
products.From the beginning URUSHI SAKAMOTO has had a reputation
for consistently high standards for refining the lacquer and for its high
quality, as well as designing and executing distinctively creative products.

In recent decades we have focused on modernizing the use of this once
traditional Japanese material in order to address the needs and tastes of
our modern life style.We pursue this mission by collaboration with other
companies that produce high-end products that require a lacquer surface.
In addition, we produce our own distinctive line of exclusively hand made
wearable pieces such as jewelry and handbags.
