Tsuru - Woven Garden Baskets from Mr. Hachimura
~Garden Baskets Made from Molded, Wild Japanese Vines~
Mr. Hachimura is one of very few skilled experts in the arts of weaving vines
such as wisteria. Mr. Hachimura harvests the vines, known as tsuru or
kazura while they are still green and molds them into baskets. The vines
harden into the molded shape. Using such ancient raw materials, Mr. Hachimura has been practicing this craft of
producing beautiful and functional works for decades.
