Treasure the beauty of imperfection based on the old Japanese art of Kintsugi, meaning gold repair.
Kintsugi originated in the late 15th century when the emperor of Japan sent a damaged Chinese tea bowl back to China for repairs. When it was returned, repaired with ugly metal staples, it may have prompted Japanese craftsmen to look for a more aesthetically pleasing means of repair.
The result: kintsugi (gold, silver, or platinum repair). The art of kintsugi became so popular and some collectors so enamored of the new art were accused of deliberately smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi.
Driven by a sustainable mindset, Kintsugi Repair Kit created to encourage mending broken artefacts instead of throwing them away. Even more so: instead of focusing on its flaws, the golden or silver seams emphasize the cracks and thus celebrate the beauty of imperfection. By repairing an object, the product becomes unique and personal.
