Katsuyama bamboo products

Katsuyama bamboo crafts are made in Okayama, western Japan. They are known as bamboo products that become more beautiful as they age. 

This craft is said to have originated around year 1860. In 1979, it was designated as a national traditional craft.

The main products used to be sieve baskets like the top photp used in farming and daily life but nowadays you can find many other products such as bread baskets (photo underneath), baskets as a vase and hand baskets (photo above).
