Japanese Traditional Craft: Handmade Bamboo Basket "Musou". Bamboo craftwork is a traditional Japanese craft with a history of over 500 years. The techniques of bamboo craftwork have been passed down from generation to generation. These bamboo baskets are woven by hand by bamboo craftsmen.
The material used is madake, which is one of the most visually appealing and durable types of bamboo. Cut down madake is boiled in hot water to remove the oil, dried, and then processed by hand into 0.1mm thick strings. Hundreds of strings made in this way are used to create beautiful bamboo crafts through meticulous work.
These baskets, which take a great deal of time and effort to make, change their color to a glossy red as they are used. One of the joys of bamboo craftsmanship is that you can enjoy this kind of change over time.This is a bamboo basket called "Musou Basket".
