Igusa Basket L

Brand: Sunami Toru Shoten
24,000 yen ($171.16 USD)

Two handle baskets crafted from woven igusa by a young 5th generation artisan at his family workshop. The airy, lightweight baskets, produced in 3 sizes, are tightly woven and remarkably durable.

The igusa plant is a water rush cultivated in Kurashi, Okayama and other regions and is commonly known as the material used to produce tatami mats. The freshly woven igusa is a cool green when new but will gradually turn a warm golden brown hue with age.
