Main production area



The woodland of Appi-Nuri is mainly made of Mizume cherry blossoms, Tochi, Zelkova and other vertical ones that are hard to get out of control. The base is characterized by the "lacquer base" applied from the base to the top coat, in particular, the top coat uses domestic lacquer that has been refined in-house, and its vivid color and fastness make full use of the features of domestic lacquer . The young creators who grew up in our studio continue to challenge new craftsmen while taking traditions into consideration.

History / History

Northern Iwate Prefecture, including Hachimantai City, has long been known as one of the leading lacquer producers in Japan. Lacquer collected from here has good transparency and color, and boasts a robust quality with excellent hardness. The Hachimantai Anshiro area has been making lacquerware rooted in life since the Shosei period, making use of the blessed conditions of rich lacquer production areas. Tradition has been temporarily cut off while the times are changing, but at the Appi Lacquerware Studio, with the aim of restoring traditional lacquerware, we are making durable, easy-to-use lacquerware as “Abi-painting” newly adapted to the times. .
