Sabae, a city in Fukui Prefecture, Echizen Shikki-producing area, has developed thanks to about 1500 years of traditional techniques. It is characterized by the production process, with each expert working in a division of labor. This leads to stable quality of lacquerware in terms of beauty and robustness, as well as high production capacity.
