About Japanese Gold Leaf

In the masterful hands of Japanese artisans, a mere 2 grams of gold is transformed, stretched, and expanded until it spans the breadth of a tablecloth. This ethereal gold leaf, so incredibly thin at just 0.000003937 inches, boasts a consistency from its heart to its edges that is nothing short of magical. As it catches the light, it emanates an even glow, producing a deep and elegant shimmer that is distinct to the craft of Japanese gold leaf. The artistry of thinning the gold to such an extreme uniformity and then meticulously applying it without a single tear is unparalleled. In a world filled with wonders, Japan's gold leaf craftsmanship stands as a luminous testament to dedication, precision, and passion.

 

About "Hakuichi"

Founded in 1975 by Kuniko Asano, who recognized the untapped potential of gold leaf, a previously overlooked material. She cultivated it into a regional brand known as "Kanazawa Gold Leaf" and pioneered the creation of "Kanazawa Gold Leaf Craftsmanship". The company was named "Hakuichi", which means "the first" in Japanese, symbolizing their leadership in the gold leaf industry in Kanazawa. The word "ichi" translates to "first" in English.
