What is the takesensuji technique?

The takesensuji technique is a thousand year old technique from Japan, that was traditionally used to make insect cages and paper lanterns. It is only few people in the world who master this technique.
This craftmanship is notable for being woven out of thin bamboo strips measuring as little as 0,8 mm
in diameter. A bamboo piece is made by using a unique bending technique to create thin flexible strips, which are inserted into a bamboo base frame drilled with small holes and then woven into beautiful free-form shapes.
