KOYORI Paper Lacquer Box
The KOYORI Series has been a long-seller for over 30 years since it was first created from the wish to expand the use of paper in our daily life. These paper vessels are characterized by their formation using Japanese lacquer called “dry lacquer formation” and “Nagato”. The former repeatedly lacquers the groundwork which is fashioned by gluing such materials as paper and hemp cloth with Japanese lacquer; and the latter recurrently lacquers the base work which is formed by braiding the twisted paper strings like bamboo work. The KOYORIi Series is produced by unique techniques using paper strings and Japanese lacquer, aiming at light and functional living utensils.
