Using strong yamabudou grapevines, this slim hanging basket is beautifully handwoven by skilled craftsmen in Fukushima prefecture, Japan. Its rustic and divine appearance will add a touch of nature in your home. Ideal for arranging fresh or dried flowers with an ikebana style to it, or for functional purposes such as storing paint brushes, scissors, kitchen utensils, or even small dusters and brooms. 


Yamabudou is a red grape variety (crimson glory vine) that originates from Japan. The hometown of Yamabudou is in the deep mountains, after crossing a river and climbing a large rock, where bears often appear. Yamabudou grows naturally with vines crawling on the surrounding trees for several meters. Even though it is a vine, it is a very thick, with a diameter of 6 to 10 cm. The time of harvest is only during the rainy season, which ensures vines contain plenty of water. The vines are then dried and tanned, and the width of the vines is aligned and knitted according to the woven pattern of the baskets. It is extremely hard work and a lot of time and human labour are spent from collecting vines to completing each basket.


It comes with a small glass bottle inside that can be filled with water and used to display fresh flowers. If you remove the bottle, you can add dried flowers or other purposes that might suit your desires. Since it is threaded with hemp twine, it can be easily hung on the wall with a hook or nail.

Due to the nature of the material, you may notice uneven colour, cracks, or thorns. These are not defects.
