Large: L32 x W32.5 x H27.5cm


Bamboo, Cherry Bark

Made in Japan


SKU: MTY34992 Categories: , Tags: ,

Using only the strong and supple bamboo and cherry (Sakura) wood barks, these baskets are beautifully handwoven one by one by skilled artisans in Miyagi prefecture, Japan.

“Kuzu” meaning litter, trash, waste in Japanese, the original function of this basket is a wastebasket, yet, it is far too nice to use only as a waste bin. Its natural and stunning appearance allows it to be used for many other purposes at home.
For kitchen, it can be a handy basket to store freshly harvested fruits and vegetables. In a living room, use it to store books and magazines, slippers and blanket, plant pots, etc. Or even simply as it’s intended purpose, a wastebasket for your home office or the seasonal garden works.

Bamboo baskets are great everyday tools and they deliver a quaint charm from simpler times that can still easily fit into modern homes and lifestyles.
