Aizu Urushi is one of the oldest and most famous lacquerware in Japan. Originated from Aizu - a region of heavy snowfalls, Aizu Urushi has a history of over 9000 years.

Akebono-nuri is an Urushi technique that creates a duo-toned finish with a combination of Red and Black Urushi. Being considered as one of the most difficult techniques, Akebono-nuri involves a complicated process of Urushi coating.

On top of Red Urushi undercoat, Black Urushi is applied and polished until the Red Urushi is revealed. As this process is repeated, the underlying Red Urushi will become glossier and a beautifully gradient design will be achieved.
