What is Seigado?
Seigado has a workshop at the foot of Mt. Yahiko in Niigata Prefecture, where high quality copper was discovered about 300 years ago and “Tsuiki”, the technique of hammering copperware has developed since then.
“Tsuiki” is a metalworking technique that is derived from the words ‘hammer’ and ‘raise’, so this process literally means hammering and embossing copperware products.
The traces of the hammering, the process of making are left as beautiful patterns on the products.
There’s a saying in Japan that things improve with good use, and Seigado’s products have a charm that naturally makes us want to take good care of them.
