Hairu series was born from the collaboration of Rina Ono’s design and handwork by Tsuruya Shoten, a company continues producing rattan furniture since 1907.

In Japan, rattan basket has been traditionally used in the house, however it was quite large for the modern lifestyles. This series remains its detail of the rattan basket, but is resized in a compact shape with carefully selected material which has beautiful natural rattan surface. Its light weight and charming impression fit perfectly in modern living space. It can be put aside of sofa or bed, laundry space, under the table or anywhere you like to store the object as blanket, magazines, toys and etc.

The traditional basket was wound and woven to make it stronger, but Hairu is using simple thick rattan as a frame and values its natural and gentle texture. The “Deep Basket” is 18 cm high which is useful in the bathroom to put towels or clothes in, or in the living room to store toys. There are other variations as “Shallow Basket” and “Basket With Legs” which is 60 cm high.
