 Product History

When did these crafts start to craft?:500 years ago / 1500AD / Muromachi period in Japan

Kintsugi traces its origins back to the 15th century Muromachi period in Japan. It emerged as a response to the cultural values of wabi-sabi, which embraces the acceptance of imperfections and transience. Originally, Kintsugi was practiced by Japanese artisans as a way to honor and preserve broken pottery, turning the damage into an integral part of the object's history. Over time, this technique gained recognition not only for its functional purpose but also for its artistic value.
