これらの桐の商品は、全て職人の手で作られ、桐仕上げ専門の会津の工房で仕上げられています。
桐の表面をガスバーナーで焼き、バフで煤を落とし、砥の粉を塗り、ロウで磨き出すという、手間のかかる桐箪笥と同じ塗装をしています。この方法は箱などの内部を良好な保管性能にすると同時に、使用による汚れを防ぐために行ないます。さらには木目の美しさや質感を大切にすることにも繋がっています。ご存知のように木材は加工された後も水分を吸収排出して、デリケートに呼吸しています。炭化処理はこの働きを損ねることなく、四季が有り寒暖の差がある日本の暮らしに適応するために、考え出された日本独特の表面処理法です。これにより箱の中と外の湿度調整がスムーズに行なわれ、材料の狂いも防げるのです。

These paulownia products are made by skilled craftsmen and are completed in a studio in Aizu which specialises in finalising paulownia goods. This final process applies the same time-consuming method as the one used for traditional paulownia cabinets: first they burn the surface by a gas burner, then they take off the soot by a buff, and finally they dab polishing powder on it and polish it with wax. This procedure contributes to keeping the inside of the boxes (and other similar goods) in good condition and, at the same time, to preventing the outside from getting stained by use. Furthermore, it leads to retaining the beauty of the wood grain and texture. As is known widely, the wood keeps breathing delicately even after being processed, absorbing and discharging moisture. The aforementioned carbonisation process is a unique method of wood surface treatment invented in Japan in order to maintain the breathing function and also to adapt to the Japanese changeable climate with distinct four seasons. It allows wooden boxes to adjust their humidity level both inside and outside and prevents the material from distortion.
