Kara-nuri is one of Tsugaru Urushi styles which refers to lacquerware made in Tsugaru - a city located in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. Being known as one of the most skill-intensive Urushi techniques, Tsugaru-nuri is sophisticated yet stunningly beautiful with its unusual finish.

Kara-nuri is the most popular Tsugaru-nuri style that illustrates distinctive speckled patterns created by four to six different Urushi color lacquers.

Kara-nuri is a process of repeating steps including Urushi coating, grinding, and polishing.

After the first base color is painted, other Urushi colors will be coated to cover the base color.

This surface is left to dry and then ground until the base color is revealed.

Regarding the name Shiro-age of the design: "Shiro" means "white" and "age" means "raised", this refers to the base color that is finally revealed after the grinding process is done.
