What is Shou Sugi Ban?

Shou sugi ban is a time-honored Japanese wood finishing technique that involves charring the surface of the wood to create a distinctive texture and color. The process entails burning the wood, followed by brushing off the charred layer to reveal the wood's natural grain. This technique has been utilized for centuries to safeguard wood from weather, insects, and fire, and has recently gained traction in contemporary architecture and design.
