Created under the theme of “Wearing traditional crafts in everyday life”.
Gold-Knot is jewelry combined with traditional Kanazawa crafts and European lace techniques.
The 16th century European tatting lace is decorated with Kanazawa-foil, which has a history of more than 400 years.
Two traditional techniques are used in a number of items that gives off delicate glare.
Thread and gold leaf, combination of light materials freed many women jewelries from weight and made it fun to easily wear traditional crafts.
The yarn used for lace knitting is manufactured at a factory in Komatsu City.
Threads made with the techniques of Ishikawa Prefecture, one of Japan’s leading textile regions, are knitted into various shapes by the hands of women who love handcrafts.
And, “Kanazawa foil” completes the look of illuminant jewelries.
The luxurious shine is created by carefully layering several sheets of foils.
