<About Echizen lacquer ware>
Echizen lacquer ware come from one of the major lacquerware producing areas around Kawada district of Sabae city in Fukui Prefecture. From wooden base works such as wooden bowls, chopsticks, four-legged trays to decorated woodcraft such as gold-relief lacquerware and sunken gold, most of which are managed with division of labor.

<越前漆器とは>
越前漆器は福井県鯖江市の河和田地区を中心に漆器製造を行っています。
椀や箸・膳などの木地製作から漆塗り・加飾(蒔絵・沈金)に至るまでの全ての工程に対応が可能で、そのほとんどが分業にて製造作業が行われています。

<Lacquer/ Urethane Coating>
Since the lacquerware product use the natural resin "lacquer", they may change their color a few months after it is shipped from the shops.
At first the inlay painting may not be visible but after using for a few months, it gradually becomes apparent. On another note, the shade of the lacquerware may also differ according to the seasons, the time of the day when the lacquer was coated on the works.
It is confirmed that the lacquer has some resistance to acid, alkaline and sodic substances as well as water repellency, and anti-bacterial effect.
Most of the Echizen crafts are for industrial use, however, are coated with urethane but its coating still have the similar feel of material as lacquer.
Unlike lacquer, most of the urethane coatings do not exert anti-bacterial effect.

<漆塗り・ウレタン塗装>
漆塗りの商品は天然塗料である漆を使用していますので、出荷した頃と数ヶ月経過した時の色が変わることがあります。
最初は絵が見えなかったものでも使用し始めて数ヶ月すると見えるようになってきます。
また、違う季節や同日の別時間帯で塗ったものでも色が異なります。
漆は酸やアルカリ・塩分に影響を受けにくく、防水効果・菌の抑制効果が確認されています。越前漆器では業務用の商品にはウレタン塗装を行うことが多く、塗装で仕上がったものは漆に似た質感があります。漆と異なりウレタン塗料には菌の抑制効果がないものがほとんどです。
