Miyabi Andon is an official Suruga basketry producer owned by the Sugiyama family for three generations and recognized officially by the Japanese government. Their craftsmen are widely recognized for their skills and expertise, two essential qualities to produce the best Suruga basketry.
Suruga bamboo basketry from Shizuoka prefecture is different from most other bamboo basketry in Japan. It is unique for using round splints of bamboo without the skin being shaved off. It dates back to the beginning of the Edo period (1600 - 1868) when warriors almost exclusively made bamboo goods as a side job in more peaceful times. Being located on the highly frequented Tokaido road between Edo and Kyoto Suruga basketry became very popular as a souvenir for travelers.
- The Bamboo items are hand crafted and each piece is unique. The color and finishing may therefore be slightly different from the photo.
- Handle with care. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt, and wipe it gently with a well-wrung cloth to clean.
- Do not wash with (hot) water.
- The color of the bamboo may change over time, depending on the storing conditions.
Miyabi Andon designs and produces traditional household items as well as modern crafts such as lamps, bags and stationary. While sticking with authentic, complex production methods, they aim to produce new products that are valuable for a wide, modern public.
