Traditionally extraordinary fine lacquerware bowls were produced with a combination of horsehair and bamboo to make them very flexible.

Lacquer-ware is crafted from a mixture of the juice of the Thitsi tree and ash applied on the surface of objects such as woven bamboo or wood.

A multicolored lacquerware item takes approximately 6 months to complete. This is because the entire process involves more than a dozen of steps to complete. Successive layers of lacquerware are applied to the object to eliminate irregularities and then dried several days. When fully dry, the surface is polished to a smooth finish, and ornamental and figurative designs are added to enhance the lacquerware.

Basically, dried lacquerware is black and to give a touch of color cheap items are simply painted, while expensive items are embellished by means of engraving, painting and polishing. The most usual colors are red, black, green and yellow.
