YAKIHAKU PEN - extraordinary craftsmanship "Flat foil"
ystudio collaborate with Rakugei in Japan, a traditional foil art workshop, for our new product this year. (2018) Mr. Kohei Murata, the owner of Rakugei and the third generation successor of his family-owned foil technique, started to learn the "Flat foil" technique form his father while studying in university. Since then, Mr. Murata had won many awards in traditional craftsmanship.
Flat foil is originally a special weaving method used on the Japanese traditional garment, kimono. And now, Mr. Murata is dedicated to applying this technique in other fields.
In this collaboration, Mr. Murata uses rare material "Unryū (means cloud dragon) Foil" and apply on ystudio's pen with delicate and high-skilled traditional technique. Through this process, the foil reveals the unique tint of vulcanized silver just like a dragon flying in the clouds.
The YAKIHAKU PEN embodied the beauty of Japanese classical aesthetics and traditional craftmanship in ystudio's brand style.
