■Black Bamboo Parasol
This is a Japanese parasol made of only domestic natural materials.
No metal is used at all, including the black bamboo handle.
The black bamboo handle fits comfortably in the hand, and the sound of the wood when the umbrella is opened is pleasant.
This is a bright yellow-green Japanese parasol that looks like fresh green sprouting in early spring.
Each parasol is made of Japanese paper hand-dyed by Shibori, a traditional Japanese technique, so that each parasol has a different texture.
■Tsujikura original Japanese parasol “En”
The relationships between people that lead up to the making of a single Japanese parasol.
Tsujikura’s commitment to the Japanese parasol is to pass this connection on to our customers and to the next generation.
*Please note that it cannot be used in the event of rain.For one Japanese parasol to be produced, specific craftsmen undertake each separate process of making the ribs, creating the ‘rokuro’ to connect the ribs, and making the Japanese washi paper.Thus each parasol is tailor-made by Tsujikura craftsmen.Japanese parasols are made due to the connections between people, and Tsujikura seeks to pass these “EN” (connections) on to our customers, as well as to the next generation.As part of our mission, we bring you the Japanese Parasol "EN" Series.
Tsujikura uses the most attractive Japanese washi paper such as Unryu (mulberry) paper and tie-dyed paper to produce Japanese parasols one rank above the rest.
Japanese parasols are not coated in oil so it is possible to enjoy the original beauty of the Japanese paper. They are used in Kyoto by Maiko (apprentice Geisha) etc. Recently Japanese parasols are gathering a lot of attention overseas as interior decoration.
*Please note that these parasols may not be used in rainy weather.
Tie-dyed washi paper is used for these Japanese parasols. Tie-dyed washi paper is Japanese paper which is hand dyed using Japanese traditional methods, giving a unique appearance to each parasol.
