  • Polishing exposes the patterns beneath

    Wakasa-nuri is characterized by the use of the "honegidashi” technique, in which patterns are made with eggshells, seashells, pine leaves, etc., and then coated with lacquer and polished. Because of their resistance to water and heat, Wakasa-nuri chopsticks are widely used as daily implements, and Wakasa-nuri chopsticks account for the majority of lacquered chopsticks produced in Japan.
