Ikkan-bari is a traditional craft in which washi paper is stretched over bamboo baskets and wooden objects, and then coated with “kakishibu” (persimmon tannin used for strength and protection against water). At Atelier Sennichiko, you can try ikkan-bari using authentic washi paper or old kimono cloth.

"Ikkan-bari bamboo basket with Kaga obi cord handles”
Choose between 3 types of ikkan-bari bamboo baskets, which can be made in about 2 hours. The baskets can be used for daily use or as decoration. The ikkan-bari instructor will carefully guide you.

After the washi paper is dried, it is coated with persimmon tannin to complete the Ikkan-bari process. It takes time to dry, so the completed product will be shipped to you about 1 week later in the mail. (Shipping cost included in the price).

Make your own one-of-a-kind "Ikkan-bari Bamboo Basket" with a Kaga obi cord handles using your choice of recycled washi or old cloth! We also offer a workshop for making wooden fuda ornaments from the Hyakunin Isshu (one hundred poems) using old cloth.
