One of the traditional hand-crafts of Shizuoka, “Suruga bamboo lattice ware”, is said to have its origin around 1620 when Shizuoka was called “Suruga”.

The bamboo is cut along its grain and split into many strings. These strings are woven into trays, vases, lantern shades, bird cages, insect cages, etc. All of them show specially delicate beauty in their curves and design.


A certain Haiku poet of old age once wrote:

I bought an insect cage.

And headed for Susono town,

at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

From this we can see that travellers who passed through Suruga often bought bamboo lattice ware as souvenirs.

Some models of Suruga bamboo lattice ware were awarded a prize as a special product of Japan at the International Trade Show in Vienna in 1873. Since then it has received prizes at several other exhibitions.

The delicate beauty and soft touch of bamboo strings attract the minds of many people, and the Suruga bamboo lattice wares are bought and used in daily life not only in Japan but the world over.

Shizuoka bamboo products were designated by Ministry of Trade and Industry as Traditional Craft Products in 1976.

As these are handmade products, it may take time to delivery from Japan.

A great curated Harlem collectible.

Price: $ 1, 500
