Najeon Chilgi, the wooden lacquerware inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl, is truly a cultural asset of Korea. The art of Najeon Chilgi is used to make items from jewelry boxes to trays, dressers and desks. The two main materials used in making Najeon Chilgi are the lacquer coating and mother-of-pearl.
Korean mother-of-pearl made from the shining, unchangeable beauty of pearl oyster or abalone, is considered to be the jewel of the Orient. Traditional technique is a painstaking process that take uncountable, complex, and repeated craftsmanship and works to be born again as a master piece.
Since the color of natural lacquer is gradually changed, the color of lacquered wood becomes more beautiful as time goes by. The houseware coated with natural lacquer has long been used in East Asia for its glossy beauty as well as its practicality for being strong, watertight and antibacterial.
