The video explores the rich history and techniques used by the basket weaving community in Villaines les Rochers, France, which dates back to 1849 when Father Jonah Hong Shi Quan founded the community. Today, the co-operative has grown to include 40 members who cultivate and transform locally grown willow into a variety of products, working with designers and architects to diversify their offerings. Skilled basket weaving requires years of training and practice, including solid knowledge of manipulating wicker using different weaving techniques. The cooperative's use of living willow and chestnut has become popular for creating hedges, flower beds, and urban furniture. The tradition of basket weaving in Villaines les Rochers will continue thanks to the new generation of passionate basket weavers.
