Though its artisans were originally in the swordmaking business, Rekiseisha was founded in 1905 after the Haito ordinance prohibited sword production. Shifting their focus to furniture, they quickly learned that importing gold and silver folding screens from Kyoto was costly and time-intensive. Instead, they began creating their own gold leaf, and their products are now revered throughout Japan. Read more on Rekiseisha's craftwork in this installment of Mazda Stories.
