Akebi Bag

Brand: Matsunoya
28,000 yen ($257.87 USD)

Akebi vine craft has been a traditional handicraft of Aomori Prefecture since the late Edo period. Akebi bags and basketsware are handmade by artisans who specialise in their production. The number of these skilled craftsmen has been declining steadily over the years but the natural beauty of the materials and careful handiwork that goes into their making have helped the bags retain their popularity. The tightly woven bags are sturdy and durable and can be used and enjoyed for many years.

*Each bag is woven by hand and there may be variations in the size and shape of the bags and the handle length.
