Urushi finish: Urushi is a traditional lacquer that comes from the sap of the Asian lacquer tree. This finishing makes the surface of objects very durable. Due to its high performance in preserving objects, it has been widely used for art works and food utensils in East Asia countries. The charming shiny and slick surface is made when it absorbs moisture from air during curing and its multiple layers and slow drying process make it very hard.
