The founder, Seijiro Hisanaga began his company called “Rekiseisha” in 1905. There was family that was originally engaged in the swords business, but they were forced to change their activity because of Haito ordinance (swords prohibition) which was established in 1876. Since then, Rekiseisha focused on the furniture of samurai residences that they had visited regularly, they converted their business to folding screen business. That is the beginning of their history. Purchasing gold and silver folding screens from Kyoto was very expensive and takes a long time to ship. It was even hard to buy ones. After much consideration, Seijiro embarked on developing the titling leaf paper using an inexpensive brass leaf. After Repeating the trial and error of using different adhesives and also the practical tests, they invented the first product of the gold paper in Japan that can withstand the practical use without discoloration in the same way as gold leaf. They started to have a great reputation and expanded their activity from Japan to the world. Starting from shrines and temples, the products of Rekiseisha are now also used in a variety of places such as luxury hotels or museums.
