Echizen lacquerware is found in the Kawada district of Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture. Echizen lacquerware accounts for 90% of Japan's commercial lacquerware production at present. Fugetsu Kobo is located in Echizen lacquerware (Urushi no Sato). Artisans who have mastered lacquerware, such as those known as kijishi, nurishi and makieshi, make their own tea utensils one by one each day with great effort and refinement. With an eye to "Japanese culture to cherish" and "a modern style of entertaining with tea," Fugetsu Kobo is constantly striving to develop new products using the techniques of Echizen lacquerware, a local product that is in demand by our customers.
