Giving shape to gold leaf expression
(Custom orders for works using metal leaf)


Valuing metal
leaf’s expressions

At HAKUZA, each time we touch gold leaf, with its thickness of 0.1 micron, we understand how people have valued and used gold since ancient times, and it further strengthens our resolve to fulfill our mission of passing it down to the next generation. Metal leaf shows various expressions depending on the material used, and the hands of superb craftsmen create a surreal charm. It shines as something of value just by existing. We want to express metal leaf in new forms, which have never existed before. With an emphasis placed on metal leaf’s expressions, we have named our new custom products HAKU WORKS.

Incomparable beauty created through the combination of metal leaf and base materials.

We accept orders that combine the metal leaf and base materials of your choice, and offer innovative products using our original processing technologies and designs.

The process of devotedly manufacturing metal leaf and applying it to base materials is similar to giving life. Metal leaf given life by craftsmen offers not only luxury and beauty, but also sublimity and comfort.


Development and production of metal leaf

Development of original metal leaf with new expressions, while preserving traditional skills and technology

*Pure Gold Platinum Leaf 〈Towa color、Kuon color〉

* Sulfidized silver leaf

We have developed “Pure Gold Platinum Leaf” suitable for outdoor use
In 2002, though considered difficult due to the difference between melting points, we succeeded in creating the world’s first alloy of pure gold and platinum. We developed two types of Pure Gold Platinum Leaf.
Although extremely close to being pure gold, the towa-color possesses a distinctive hue, due to its 1% platinum content. Kuon-color is close to champagne gold.
Pure Gold Platinum Leaf is suitable for outdoor use, since it contains no substances that can cause discoloration.

We have recently developed a new type of metal leaf through sulfidation. We will continue to develop and manufacture new types of metal leaf.

*In 2020, traditional entsuke gold leaf was designated as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.

New material / technique development
