We found this basket at an antique market in Kyoto. We love a good basket, this rice basket is often used for as the name suggests storing rice but outside of it's practical purpose, it would make a great feature piece or for storage.

Story:

When we set out on a sourcing trip to find products we always like to wander through back streets, explore antique and general markets and speak to the locals because you never know what you may find or where the path will take you. We love Japan because even the most unassuming and seemingly desolate street can be the home to secret treasures.

On our recent trip through Kyoto we visited antique markets, shops we discovered tucked away in backstreets and spoke to local makers to find a treasure trove of items to bring back. Each piece tells its own story, antiques and market pieces that have age and character, others that are handcrafted while some are just things we couldn’t resist from little boutiques.
