GOLD LEAF KYOTO
The ancient capital of Kyoto is a treasure trove of arts and artisanry, but the integrity of these works is threatened by the passage of time. Gold Leaf Kyoto is addressing the threat by combining advanced image processing technologies with craft traditions passed down from over the generations. Preserving our cultural heritage while creating a new beauty for our times is the essence of what we do at Gold Leaf Kyoto. The awe-inspiring beauty that was created over the past twelve centuries and is even now being practiced in Kyoto is something that we would like future generations here in Japan and more people overseas to appreciate. That is our fervent wish, and is the inspiration that motivates us in our work. Taking the forms and artifices of past masters as a basic motif, Gold Leaf Kyoto seeks to create new spatial designs and artisanry for a new time.
bussiness that makes Use of Local Handcraft Resources
Gold Leaf Kyoto depends heavily on local handicraft practitioners in Kyoto for the supplies it uses every day, such as Japanese washi paper, gold leaf and silver leaf. By buying from local suppliers, Gold Leaf Kyoto returns its business profits back to collectors and local handicraft industries. In the process, we ensure that the traditional beauty and techniques of Kyoto artisans will continue to be passed down to future generations. This is the heart and soul of what we do at Gold Leaf Kyoto, and the contribution we seek to make.
