Dark brown bamboo ikebana basket with twisted handle.

Ikebana or Ka-do (the way of flowers) is a traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement. Unlike Western floral art, ikebana does not aim to emphasize only the beauty of the flowers and the harmony of colours. This art wants to enhance the vase, the stems, the leaves, the branches as much as the flower itself.
The structure of the floral arrangement is based on three symbols: the sky, the earth and humanity.
