New kintsugi repair kit is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the old japanese kintsugi technique; the art of fixing broken pottery with real gold.

The story goes that kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, kintsugi (gold repair).
This art became such a hype that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi. 

Humade made this New kintsugi combined this lovely old technique with new technology. By messy mending you emphasise the marks and scars of a product giving it a new perspective and beauty while offer it longevity.

Feel free to also try the New kintsugi repair kit on almost any other material next to ceramic.
