All five Kagawa lacquer techniques creatively apply natural elements to creating lacquerware. For example, the zokoku-nuri technique calls for artisans to sprinkle a thin layer of black powder over the last coating of lacquer to create a matte finish. This black powder is refined from wild zizania latifolia that grows by rivers. Zokoku-nuri was invented by Mr. Tamakaji Zokoku during the Edo period. The ruggedness of the zokoku-nuri adds a layer of antiquity to lacquer, creating beautiful yet highly durable items. Kagawa lacquerware becomes glossier and matures over time.
