Shikishima Flower Basket
$70.00

The restraint of Japanese basket design may mislead the uninitiated to believe that the art is simple. In truth, mastering the art demands years of training. The weaving of a single basket can take months of meticulous labor, from the delib­eration over the design through the selection of raw mate­rials and the complex plaiting and finishing processes. While bamboo baskets have served various utilitarian functions in Japanese daily life for centuries, they have also been valued for their beauty.

A plastic watertight cylinder fits snugly inside so that flowers can be displayed in the basket; the cylinder can be removed for easy care.
