Bamboo weaving craft

Bamboo contains a certain cultural value in Chinese society. Seen as the token of nobility and rectitude, bamboo was the theme of numerous Chinese ink paintings. It is also a source of material for handicrafts because of its flexibility and tenacity. Sieves, baskets, mats and recliners made of bamboo offer a muted gracefulness and a feel of coolness in hot summers.
