It is made of urushi coated wood for the bottom and the lid, bamboo for the handle and washi ( Japanese paper ) for the hood. The lid is coated with black urushi and the urushi technique for the base is called fuki-urushi that is once coated urushi is wiped so as to the beautiful wood grain can be seen.
