Eichizen Lacquerwar artisans from Sabae city in Fukui prefecture — home to Japan’s most highly-skilled lacquerware artists — have crafted this iPhone 6 case using the traditional lacquering technique known as “Byakudan Nuri”, where a piece with silver-painted design is coated with a transparent lacquer to give depth and shine. Not only is the lacquered finish a joy to hold, but constant use will polish the finish so the colors and shine gain character over the years. The checkerboard pattern is an ancient one that retains its appeal even in modern times.
Materials: Polycarbonate, Lacquer. Includes small box for gift wrapping.
