Gold leaf paper used to shine with dazzling light in the long river of history. Today, we can still hear its echo from a thousand years ago in various buildings.

Since ancient times, gold has been endowed with symbolic meanings such as mystery, magnificence, nobility, and sacredness. The gold leaf, which is less than one ten thousandth of a millimeter in thickness, is forged from pure gold through twelve complicated processes, and is made by nearly 30,000 beatings. Thin as cicada wings, soft as silk.

In the long history, these thin gold foils have been widely used in palaces, temples, pavilions and other architectural decorative arts, absorbing the luxury and artistic essence of gold, and blooming with dazzling light.

The gilding technique of ancient buildings in my country was first seen in the Dunhuang Grottoes, which contain frescoes from the Northern Wei Dynasty, which are decorated with gilding, which is very gorgeous. In the Tang and Song Dynasties, the method of piled up mud or piled powder to paste gold appeared. This method played an extremely important role in the construction of large palaces and temples in later generations. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the application of gilding in architectural decoration was more mature, and the buildings decorated with gilding also appeared more gorgeous, solemn and majestic.

In modern times, gold leaf foil is not only widely used in large-scale temples and buildings in China, but also to the world. The Royal Palace of Thailand, the archway of Osaka in Japan, the Palace of Versailles in France, and St. Petersburg in Russia have all seen the wonderful brilliance of the "Golden Ling" gold leaf.

With the progress of the times and the improvement of people's living standards, the application range of gold foil has become more extensive. The indoor and outdoor gilding of modern buildings such as star hotels, luxury villas, clubs and special commercial spaces has gradually become a trend.

Nowadays, gold foil, which highlights the beauty of high-end luxury, has gradually entered the field of home decoration. Its magnificent temperament is not only the elegance and luxury of classical European style, but also the fashion aesthetic that can adapt to modern life, attracting more and more people of good taste.

I believe that you with high taste are already eager to try it. You can use KINNO gold leaf to decorate your warm home and enjoy your own elegance and luxury.
