[What is Ikabari]
In Tokushima, the area from the roots of a tree to about 1 meter above the ground is called this.
For high-quality furniture and building materials, we harvest trees that are at least 1 meter above the ground, where they grow straight. This is because the grain of the wood is even on straight parts, giving it a uniform appearance.
On the other hand, the ``ikabari'', which is the root part, shows that the tree is trying to spread its roots underground.
Due to its disordered and unbalanced grain, it has not been treated as a high-quality wood, but Mai Kobo believes that this is where the wood's original character lies.
Since the amount that can be collected from one root is small, the number of dishes that can be made is also small.
I would be happy if you could feel the life of a single tree and the beauty of its vitality in this disordered wood grain.
