What is Keum Boo?


Keum-boo (also spelt Kum-boo or kum-bu) is an ancient gilding technique originating from Korea.

This is created by applying sheets of 24 carat gold to pure fine silver, using heat and pressure causing a silver-gilt. During the fusion bonding of the two metals, atoms will exchange in a collision combining them permanently into one.
