Comment These baskets were used in the home to hold clothing and/or other personal effects. This one was probably made in the Japanese San'in Region, a well know area for it's high quality basket-making. This region generally refers to the prefectures of Shimane, Tottori and northern area of Yamaguchi which are near Kyoto where we acquired these baskets.

The owner's name is hand lettered on the inside Obayashi-san.

Use for sewing basket, fabric stash or whatever.
