〜Craftsman’s handiwork〜

We are working on the process of making Wagasa, which is called “Do-bari” (stretching the body).
This time, we are making a Wagasa with a traditional pattern called “snake’s eye pattern”.
As the name suggests, the pattern is derived from the “snake’s eye” appearance.
First, the outside is covered with Washi, then the inside, and finally the inside in this order.
It is a delicate and time-consuming technique.
The white rings accentuate each color to create a dignified, elegant, and beautiful japanese umbrella.
