In ancient times, this technique was used for aristocrat and Samurai's vehicles, and used for ceiling in tearoom. At the present age, "Ajiro" knitted with rattan is seen for a tea canister, a chest of drawers, and a flower vase. These products have a feeling of specialty and very popular product. Nakaya remade this Bamboo Ajiro feeling also referred some "Ajiro" Inros by Maki-e in Edo period. To express "Ajiro", Nakaya piled up at the place where each "bamboo" match each other and described in black "roiro urushi" lacquer ware.
