Black persimmon has been highly treasured in Japan for 1300 years (multiple articles stored in the prestigious Shosoin treasury are made of black persimmon).
In the old days, the wood was so valuable that it was beloved only among influential figures and the wealthy class, and ordinary people would not have been able to even see it.
Only one in tens of thousands of persimmon trees that are several hundreds years old and meet several conditions (ingredients in the soil, microorganisms, climate, etc) develops the characteristic beautiful black and white pattern of black persimmon. The material is thus miraculously created, and craftsmen make the most of their mastery to create items using the beautiful wood. Its white and black pattern boasts such mysterious beauty that you cannot believe it is wood.
