IKUE is accessory expanded the possibility of the paper and traditional Full Gilt Edging which had been used to preserve bibles from deterioration.
SAMPOKIN (Full Gilt Edging) had been used to preserve bibles from deterioration since long ago. The gold applied to edge of the paper was for functional purpose as well as a decorative element to make the books aureate and beautiful. IKUE is accessory made of paper and gold to expand the possibility of traditional SAMPOKIN and the paper. Through the layers of paper outlined with gilt, we aim to express our layers of wishes to hand down the tradition to the next generation and to develop the technology.
