Sasa-dango dumplings

This traditional packaging for sasa-dango dumplings consists entirely of bamboo grass and a straw thread, and was borne out of the need to preserve the food and ‘make it easily portable‘. On the Ping Magazine website, Hideyuki Oka explains that: ‘Such packages were not products of contemplation, nor yet of theory. They assumed their shapes over years and years of unconscious use and experimentation’.
