Writing instruments / Namiki Tradition



Namiki Maki-e fountain pens are created using various types of advanced techniques. The more the lacquer is applied, the deeper the colour becomes and the more the gold and silver powder glows. In a world where beauty is vividly expressed in motifs, these techniques convey tradition.

The Namiki Tradition Collection takes traditional Japanese and auspicious subjects known the world over, and has them drawn on a black lacquered background in Hira Maki-e (Flat Maki-e). The shiny black of the lacquer, along with the overflowing vibrancy from each work makes it a sight to behold.

Hira Maki-e technique - The lacquered main design is decorated with sprinkled gold and silver powders. Several additional layers of lacquer are then applied. After the lacquer is hardened, it is then burnished.
