The Art of Lacquer at Mai Home

Our lacquer products are entirely handcrafted by skilled artisans selected for their quality mindset

In our lacquer atelier, expertise takes precedence over machines: the use of proven tools and techniques passed on by previous generations is the rule. In the heat and dampness of Vietnam, our lacquer artisans work only with their hands to make the lacquered object undergo the desired transformation. This is an industrious art without being industrial. Patience, attention to detail, right gestures: they are simple but fascinating acts that produce “works of art”, creative furnishings made of genuine and traditional lacquer.

Impeccable finishings achieved through top quality materials and skilled craftsmanship

The base of our lacquer products is made of first grade MDF wood and the surface is finished using Vietnam traditional lacquering technique. The beautiful, smooth and glossy 12-layer lacquer surface is the result of a 6-week lacquering process, following Vietnam traditional lacquer technique while adopting modern materials and lacquer paint. Our handmade lampshades are made of fine materials and textiles. Careful visual and hand feel inspections at each stage of the production process ensure high and consistent quality.
