Ryukyu-nuri

Ryukyu-nuri
Ryukyu-nuri, Ryukyuan lacquerware, though frequently included among types of Japanese lacquer, actually developed largely independently, with strong influences from China and Southeast Asia, as the Ryukyu Islands did not come under Japanese control until 1609.

Bembo was a leading Ryukyu-nuri factory for a long time until closed its door in 2001.
