It’s your chance to show a bit of class and keep your precious tech from getting damaged.

Echizen lacquer, sometimes referred to as Echizen Shikki, is a traditional Japanese craft that has 1,500 years of history behind it. These beautiful bowls, cups and other home goods can be seen in numerous Japanese households and often make popular gifts. Normally starting with wood, the goods are crafted and then sealed and finished with lacquer and often decorated with drawings that are fixed with metals such as gold and silver. The result is a beautiful and intricate piece that would look stunning in anyone’s home.

Now thanks to Tsuchinao Collection, you’ll be able to take the look of Echizen lacquer ware with you as you go about your daily business, as long as you have an iPhone that is.
