http://www.cottages-gardens.com/The-Design-Devoted/January-2011/Japanese-Basket-Art/# As the Japanese tea ceremony gained popularity, so did the demand for baskets, as flower arrangements were an important part of the tea experience. This basket is made from bamboo, which grows extremely fast which means it is easy to use in craft as a yarn type material as it grows tall and long, being able to mimic the length of a yarn. I love the creations that can be made by simple, natural structures.
