Maker of delicately handcrafted Buddhist paraphernalia
The golden glitter of Kyoto crafts is created in skillful hands of local artisans specialising in stamping of 0.0001 mm-thick gold leaves. Gold leaf stamping technique was originally used for decoration of various Buddhism-related crafts. Even today, it plays a great role in Japanese traditional culture. TADA Kinpaku is an atelier dealing with Buddhist statues and implements. In Kyoto, the elaborate techniques of gold stamping have developed due to the high demand provided by the sheer amount of temples and head temples of many Buddhist sects. Today, gold leaf decoration can be applied to different materials and shapes, bringing Kyoto craftsmanship to the new level.
