Ikkanbari is a traditional handicraft in the Kagawa Prefecture where taking old and worn-out items (especially damaged baskets) and making them new and beautiful again. The technique is similar to paper-mache, in which several layers of wash paper is pasted a frame base, such as baskets, and then varnish with persimmon tannin (kakishibu) for a very strong and durable finish. You will start with a prepped basket (cms 32 x 10 x 25) with study handle and take home a beautiful and useful basket to be used for everyday shopping or storage.
