The History of Inden – the art of Lacquered Deerskin
Inden is the art of creating beautiful lacquer designs on deerskin. The craft of Inden started in 1582 during the Sengoku period for the production of some of the garments used for Samurai armours.
Today the Yamanashi district is the premier location in Japan for creating beautiful deerskin lacquered products.
The art form, techniques and patterns used in 1582 are still in use today at Inden-Ya.
It takes many weeks to create each product and every deerskin lacquer product is entirely made by hand.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful products as much as we enjoy using them.
