【What is the Damascene "Kyo Zogan"?】
Our damascene craft is called Kyo Zogan.
Kyo Zogan is a traditional Kyoto handicraft created by carving a cloth-weave inlay texture onto thin iron sheets,
inlaying pure gold and silver designs onto the texture, applying lacquer over it, and then placing hatching onto
the gold and silver designs after polishing them.
.Zogan was born in Damascus in Syria, after which it is said to have been brought to Kyoto in the 8th century via
the Silk Road. Subsequently, the process of carving the cloth-weave inlay texture onto the thin iron sheets,
implanting the pure gold and silver, applying lacquer and baking was repeated and developed into
a unique technique which came to be called Kyo Zogan.

After the 16th century, the Umetada and Shoami family lines of sword smiths advanced the technique to be used as
ornamentation for swords, and it grew to become the refined and elegant art of Kyo Zogan.

After the age of the warriors came to an end, Zogan became to be used for such things as industrial artworks and
ornamentation for personal items, and currently the craft is highly praised as one of Kyoto's representative traditional industrial art forms.

Our Damascene products are all manufactured by our own crafts men.

【象嵌とは?】
象嵌はシリアのダマスカスで誕生した金属装飾技術です。その技術は8世紀には、シルクロードを経て京都に伝わったといわれております。のちに京都では鉄生地に布目状の細やかな溝を刻み、純金・純銀を打ち込み、漆焼きを繰り返す独自の技術が進化し、今日の京象嵌へと発展を遂げました。
16 世紀以降は刀鍛冶の埋忠家と正阿弥家が刀剣への装飾技術として進化させ、繊細かつ優美な京象嵌へと大成させました。武士の世が終焉を遂げると、象嵌はその後、美術工芸品やアクセサリーなどに用いられるようになり、現在では、京都の代表的な伝統工芸技術の一つとして高く評価されています。

当社の象嵌はすべて当社の工房で職人がひとつひとつ丁寧に作製したものです。
京象嵌ならではの精巧で優美な世界をお楽しみいただけます。
