Moe Watanabe Akebi Tray Baskets
Akebi weaving small basket and tray handcrafted by Tokyo based crafter/artist Moe Watanabe. The material used for these pieces are dried vines of Akebi or Akebia which is a plant that grows wild in many Japanese mountains and it has been a popular material to make weaving baskets in northern Japan although there are fewer artisans left today. An emerging artist Moe Watanabe goes into mountains to collect the materials herself to create her unique modern handcrafts.
There are two different designs/types, a small round one and a larger tray basket. Select from pull down list.
