This one-of-a-kind bamboo basket is a late-Meiji era flower basket (hanakago) designed especially for ikebana, the Japanese art of floral arrangement. The basket has a trapezoidal form that tapers to a round opening and is surmounted by a high, arched handle. Beautifully woven of smoked bamboo (susutake), the body of the basket is a twill plaited (ajiro-ami) in a zig-zag pattern and decorated with irregular thin strips integrated into the weave. The handle is comprised of thin strips strengthened by a simple wrapping (bo-maki). Used to contrast and anchor delicate flowers, this bamboo ikebana basket adds rich texture and form to any space.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
