  Suruga bamboo lattice ware

One of the traditional handi-crafts of Shizuoka, “Suruga bamboo lattice ware”, is said to have its origin around 1620 when Shizuoka was called “Suruga”. The bamboo is cut along its grain and split into many strings. These strings are woven into trays, vases, lantern shades, bird cages, insect cages, etc. All of them show a specially delicate beauty in their curves and design. Shizuoka bamboo products were designated by The Ministry of Trade and Industry as Traditional Craft Products in 1976.
