In Japanese culture, Kintsugi (also known as “Kintsukuroi”) is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold lacquer. As a philosophy, it teaches us to embrace the beauty in imperfections. It does not disguise or hide an object or person’s breakage, scars, and repairs. Instead, they are treated as part of the object/person’s history and beauty.
This concept can be seen in the increased popularity of preloved and second-hand goods. A growing number of people are realising that an item doesn’t have to be new for it to possess quality.
In fact, some preloved items can be even better than a brand new one. Furthermore, by being only a fraction of the price, it makes it more accessible and affordable to customers.
