This shallow basket was collected from an antique store in Kyoto. It's woven design and shallow edges makes it the perfect piece for having at the front door as a place to hold your keys, change and wallet.
Our friend Kingy is based in Kyoto with her husband and baby daughter. She trawls through the antique markets and store through the area to find us amazing goodies.
Kingy photographs the pieces in her parent-in-law's old machiya in town.
