Willow weaving, basket weaving
Willow weaving or basket weaving is a craft of making wicker products from vine: household utensils and containers for various purposes, such as boxes, baskets, vases, etc., furniture (tables, chairs, chests, cradles), etc. Under the vine we understand any natural material of plant origin, capable of certain processing with ease to bend, and under normal conditions to keep the shape. The name of the material - "vine" comes from the vine from which the baskets were woven.

You have probably heard the word "matting". However, not everyone knows for sure what it is. Once upon a time, this was the name of a coarse cloth used in the household. The fibers of the cattail plant were used for its production. Later, people began to use bast.
