Basho weaving studio

March 29, 2014

Well, the tour finished so quickly.  I could not go home without weaving anything.

Next destination is to Yumiko’s studio.

Her studio is located on the hillside and she is such a plant expert.  I had a chance to hunt some plants which could be used to make cloth while walking.

Naoko who is a weaver and paper maker invited me to her paper making studio.

She was making basho paper cloth.

To make basho paper, we use the other half of basho stalk layers…?!

I will explain in better way in the future.
