Discover the Backstory of Korindo

Founded in 1938 in Fukui Prefecture and boasting a history of over 80 years, Korindo has gained recognition for its significant role, including providing ceremonial tableware for the enthronement of Japan's new emperor. "Korindo" is their brand name, formally known as Echizen Lacquerware Co., Ltd., which plays a vital role in inheriting the traditional craft of Echizen lacquerware, a quintessence of Japanese artisanship.

Their corporate philosophy, "Brilliance of Rin to the world," draws inspiration from Rin, a leading school of Japanese art and culture during the medieval era, still influential today. Being close to Kyoto, the capital at the time, has deeply rooted their work in Rin's influence, incorporating its patterns into their lacquerware. Embracing Rin's spirit of freedom, boldness, and challenge, combined with the craftsmanship passed down through generations, they aim to create lacquerware that enriches lives and brings joy.
