The Kintsugi Repair Kit by Humade enables you to repair your broken cups and plates by using the old Japanese technique of gold dusted glue. This technique originated in the mid 15th century. During that time Japanese craftsmen were invited to come up with a new way of repairing broken porcelain to replace the then common but not so aesthetically pleasing way of using metal staples. The Japanese have come to value the beautiful imperfection of gold dusted glued porcelain. They believe it adds character and captures the story of the object, whereas most people in the western world are more inclined to replace a broken cup with a new one. Thanks to Humade it is now super easy to add some Japanese aesthetics to your own collection of porcelain.
