The project was put together as a means of answering interest outside Japan in bonsai trees, but also circumventing a lot of the challenges involved in internationally shipping actual trees, as well as minimizing maintenance issues. There are a total of 7 nylon “puzzle” prints planned, which can be shaped into bonsai designs by “shearing” each guided outline, making it a beginner-friendly design.
