Production of sunagowork using real gold started during the Tempyo period (710－794), and the techniques were completed in the Heian period (794－1185). Sunagowork can be seen in national treasures such as Heike Nokyo (sutras dedicated by the Taira family) and Sanjurokuninkashu (manuscript of Japanese poems written by the 36 master poets). From then on, the sunago techniques were improved and passed down to this day as a traditional craft unique to Japan. The sensibility of Japanese people developed sunagowork through times. I want to produce refined, elegant sunagowork to match our modern life style.
