The Collection

Japanese Bamboo Baskets

The Cotsen Japanese Bamboo Basket Collection is the world's largest and most internationally recognized. While basket weaving is an ancient craft, the Japanese developed it into a unique art form in the late 19th century. These baskets reflect both the beauty of Japanese tradition and the sophistication of contemporary sculpture. While most of this collection has been donated to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, California, some pieces remain with the Cotsen Collections.
