  • Wakasa nuri hashi (Wakasa lacquer chopsticks) have been made in Japan in Fukui prefecture since the Edo period, dating back many centuries. Craftsmen in Wakasa apply multiple layers of lacquer to each chopstick, and depending on the style, may also incorporate small pieces of seashell or mother of pearl to enhance the design. After applying layer upon layer of lacquer, the chopstick is then carved or polished. Wakasa chopsticks that are simply polished often have colorful, organic patterns that reveal the many coatings of lacquer and inlaid shell beneath. Carved Wakasa chopsticks on the other hand often have wood grain-like patterns that reveal the different colors and fine layers of the many coats of lacquer. Each Wakasa lacquer chopstick is very labor intensive, and can contain upwards of 50 layers of lacquer.
