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 Inden still make deerskin products entirely by hand and use the same techniques and patterns from 1582.
