Product Story

“Teppachi” bamboo basket is a creation based on mendicant monks’ iron bowls. During the 40s to 60s, bamboo baskets in the shape of a Teppachi were prevalent. Those made in Beppu, Japan were must buy souvenirs in the region. The locals sent their best Japanese citrus in the baskets as gifts. 

 

Produced by Sato Mikiko, a bamboo craftsman from Japan, with tiger bamboo strips. Twill weave technique was used. As a practical incarnation of a traditional craftsmanship, it is perfect for storing sundries on a side table or merely hanging on the wall as a decoration.
