Wajima-nuri is characterized by its exquisite workmanship, durability, and elegant, gorgeous, and delicate decorations.
Chopsticks are a tool that people use in daily life, regardless of age, gender or season.
Since two chopsticks are “one set”, they make a perfect gift for wedding celebrations, thank-yous, anniversaries, and other such occasions.

The fine wave pattern on the handles shows the fineness of the craftsman's handiwork.
These chopsticks are also gorgeous.
The gold parts are decorated by a decorative technique called “han-oshi maki-e”.

These lacquered chopsticks, with their unique lacquer feel and mouth feel, make daily meals enjoyable.
Each chopstick is carefully lacquered by Wajima lacquer craftsmen, and the wood and lacquer make them light and strong, so they will last for a long time.

Wajima-nuri, a traditional craft, is a lacquering technique that has been handed down in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture.
The history of Wajima-nuri is said to date back to the Jomon Period, more than 10,000 years ago.

Wajima-nuri is characterized by delicate and beautiful decorations such as “chinkin” and “makie".
One of the main characteristics of Wajima-nuri is the “division of labor,” in which specialized craftsmen carry out each process.
In each of the more than 120 manufacturing processes, specialized craftsmen apply their skills and pass the work from hand to hand.
Wajima-nuri crafting technique requires several months to a year to complete.
Wajima-nuri is produced through more than 120 processes, which can be broadly classified into planning and design, Ki-ji (wood base), Shita-ji(base coat), Naka-nuri(middle coat), Uwa-nuri(top coat), and Kasyoku(decoration).

Ki-ji (wood base)
Wood is laid down in the mountains for about 3 to 4 years and in the village for about 1 year before the wood is made into the base of the tree. Each craftsman creates the wood from carefully selected pieces of lumber, including hewn, fingering, and bent pieces. 輪島塗 木地
Nu-ri (coat)
Diatomaceous earth, which is unique to Wajima-nuri, is mixed with the lacquer and repeatedly applied as a base coat, middle coat, and top coat to give it depth and strength. 輪島塗 塗
Chin-kin
Wajima-nuri is a unique decorating technique in which a chisel is used to carve into the surface of the lacquer and fill in (submerge) gold leaf or gold and silver powder to create a pattern.
This technique is best suited for Wajima-nuri, which uses a lot of lacquer, and the depth and precision of Wajima-nuri are different from those of other production areas.
Wajima-nuri has produced both living national treasures and members of the Art Institute of Japan. 輪島塗 沈金
Makie
This is a technique in which a pattern is drawn in lacquer and then gold is sprinkled on the surface.
This is a uniquely Japanese technique that combines a number of techniques such as hira-makie, taka-makie, and ken-dashi-makie to sprinkle gold and silver metal powders and colored powders on the surface of a lacquer ware with a design drawn in lacquer to make them adhere to the surface.
Some vivid combinations of colored urushi lacquer are also used.
