We would like you to use “wood and lacquer” more in everyday life. Wajima Kirimoto has the sincerest desire to make and provide a variety of lacquer ware.
Kirimoto Family has dedicated to wood and urushi lacquerware product development for more than 200 years in Wajima, Ishikawa prefecture.
From the late 18th to early 20th century, our company manufactured and sold Wajima lacquerware and from the 1920’s, the company changed its name to “Kiirmoto Wooden Craft Workshop” and shifted its business specializing in carving the core wooden fittings. The seventh generation, Taiichi Kirimoto majored in product design at university and worked in an office planning for another company before returning to Wajima. After apprenticing as a wood core maker, he started producing wood modeling proposals, design proposals, and has overseen the overall direction of lacquer production.
In 2015, the trade name was changed to “Wajima Kirimoto”, and the talented craftspeople of the company produce wooden and lacquer vessels, furniture, and interior elements, exploring the possibilities of wood and Urushi lacquer as a part of modern lifestyles.
