  1. What is Berk Cross?

Berk Cross is a material made from a fabric that is thinly stretched like a cloth.


The craftsmen carefully peeled off the tree, boiled the skin, and extended the thin with a hammer, are also registered as a World Intangible heritage.

Here's a small story, it was confirmed that Berk Cross was used in Uganda, which was quite old in the 12th century and became a traditional material.

It was a story before cotton spreading in Uganda, and in Uganda it was commonly used as a cloth cloth.

It is also called "the oldest cloth in mankind".

The feel of Berk Cross is characteristic, like a wooden skin.

We also provide an hands -on booklet that can actually touch the Berk Cross, so please check it out once.

Next, let's look at the process of creating Berk Cross!

  1. The process of making Berk Cross

Berk Cross is made by craftsmen from Mutuba trees, and is used to prevent the trunk from damaging the trunk when it is turned off.


Even if the bark cross is peeled to make a bark cross, it seems that a sturdy skin will be regenerated on the surface of the wood in about a year if it is properly processed.

It is a sustainable material that you can not help but feel the mystery of nature.


This is the craftsman's studio. Here, the bark cross peeled off from the tree is processed.


Berk cross, which is thinly stretched with a hammer, place a stone around and dry well in the sun.

By changing the drying time or performing mud dyeing that uses local mud, it can be dyed in various colors such as brown, black and white.
