“Hikihaku” gives Nishijin textile a gorgeous shine. The ``Hikihaku technique'', in which gold and silver leaves are pounded and woven into textiles, is a traditional technique unique to Nishijin-ori. In the Hikihaku Art x Chopsticks Project, we use this Hikihaku technique to color the surface of Japanese paper with colored lacquer or lacquer, and then add patterns to it. In addition to gold and silver leaf, we use a variety of materials and tools to create unique patterns.
