Hata Shikki Is Holding a Product Launch Exhibition “Color, Color,”

Hata Shikki, a brand that manufactures and sells Yamanaka lacquerware, is holding its first solo product launch exhibition. Held at its own store in Yamanaka Onsen, Ishikawa Prefecture, the exhibition opened August 18, 2022.

Founded in 1930, Hata Shikki has since developed two brands of lacquerware, “col.” and “unomatsudo.”, using the wood turning technique that has been traditionally passed down in the Yamanaka Onsen area. The brand “col.” is distinguished by its wood texture and contrasting bright colors while “unomatsudo” adopts the traditional style of Yamanaka lacquerware. This new product launch “color, color,” is held after the renovation of their store that opened in November 2018. In this exhibition, Hata Shikki introduces new color variations of the col. series, as well as “HIKE”, a new cup and saucer inspired by the climate of Yamanaka Onsen.

Exhibition is open to public. The event ends on August 30, 2022.
