made of paper... January 6, 2012
These baskets are handmade from 100% recycled paper by artisans at Best Before in Paris. Corinne Muller and Piotr Oleszkowicz from Best Before breathe new life into the ancient Korean craft of paper weaving and knotting.
Flat strips of paper are rolled into strong cords that are then used for turning into beautiful baskets. I found this great video by Aimee Lee; it shows master weaver Na Seo Hwan at work using the traditional Korean Jiseung method.
