What is Raden?

Raden is a prominent traditional craft technique that has been passed down since Japans ancient Tenpyo era (1500 years ago). Raden crafts utilise the rainbow-like glitter of abalone shells. The Raden craftsmen cut the part into as thin as 0.1mm with chisels and needles and create images of natural objects that will be attached to lacquerware.

This technique to produce the splendid Raden lacquerware represents Takaokas (Toyama prefecture) profound heritage of craftsmanship. Raden was designated as the national traditional crafts in 1975.
