Takeami, or bamboo weaving, has been a traditional craft in Japan for centuries. Woven bamboo goods are sturdy, lightweight, and attractive, making them popular for both decoration and daily practical use even today. Recently, there has been increased interest in goods made from bamboo, as it can be grown and harvested sustainably, with little waste or pollution.
