Be sure to wear gloves while working.

When treating urushi, be aware of allergic reactions to urushiol, which is contained in urushi.
Urushi can cause skin irritation when it is wet, but once completely hardened, urushi is perfectly food-safe and is one of the most durable natural materials.

It is important to always wear rubber gloves when treating lacquer. The use of rubber gloves and arm covers prevents urushi from touching the skin. However, because lacquer vaporizes in miniscule amounts, people who easily get rashes from poison ivy or mango may get severely irritated even when wearing rubber gloves.
In the unlikely event that you touch the lacquer or become irritated by it, please consult a physician and seek immediate medical attention.

Chimahaga is not responsible for any health problems caused by treating lacquer.
Please be very careful when treating urushi.

Genuine Kintsugi

This kit is supervised by Chimahaga, a Japanese kintsugi repairer.
You can experience authentic kintsugi using traditional Japanese techniques and materials.

Food Safe

This kit uses natural urushi lacquer and real gold, so it is safe to use on dishes.

It does not contain any epoxy resin or alternative gold powder that is harmful to the body.

Great for a gift

Mizuhiki(水引き), a traditional Japanese gift wrapping technique, is attached to the package.

The red flower in the middle represents the ume bloosom, which is also used for celebratory occasions.

Tutorial videos are on Youtube.

Arrived much faster than expected + excellent quality

Was shocked that it arrived in less than two weeks after coming back in stock (I live in USA). The kit is exactly as described on the site and the instructional video is very clear. I’m delighted to be able to bring new life to my broken favorite plate, especially since mending methods that use epoxy glue aren’t food safe. I was worried kintsugi would either be a) only accessible by sending my broken plate to a professional at great expense, or b) be extremely difficult and require lots of practice to master; this kit has proved that neither is true. The process is labor intensive and time-consuming but ultimately very forgiving; all mistakes can be corrected with a little patience. I’m grateful that this kit exists.

As described

I’m happy with the product, but did not follow recommandations about wearing gloves. My mistake, I ended up with a severe allergic reaction similar to poison Ivy contact. Please be careful, avoid skin contact.
