Superglue is one method.  Shellac or lacquer might work too with reasonable drying times.  I haven't done a lot with mulberry but don't remember any particular issues.

I have used coffee grounds (old & new), herbal & regular teas, and saw dust use a coffee grinder to make those items fine apply CA glue. Have to be careful with CA glue or make a career of sanding it away.

The responses assume you are talking about cracks or gaps.  If indeed it's pores, as here

the traditional grain-filling materials and techniques should do it for you. http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/Fi...grain.html
