This Japanese parasol is made of black bamboo for the handle, and all the other small parts are made of natural materials. The hajiki, which holds the umbrella in place when opened, is made of wood instead of metal, and bamboo nails are used to connect the parts. The indescribable sound of the wooden pegs when the umbrella is opened is pleasant, and the black bamboo fits comfortably in the hand.
The “Stripe Pattern Bunjin Brown” is a Japanese parasol with a deep and austere brown stripe pattern. This parasol is recommended for both men and women who prefer a calm color.
This parasol is not suitable for use in rainy weather.
It takes many craftsmen to make a single Wagasa, including those who make the bones, the parts called “rokuro” that connect the bones, and the Japanese paper. Then, Tsujikura’s craftsmen make the umbrella into a single piece.
A Japanese umbrella is the result of relationships between people, and these relationships are then passed on to the next generation of customers.
With this in mind, we named our parasol “En” (meaning “to connect”).
With this meaning, we have named our parasols “En”, and we will continue to make our best efforts to make Japanese parasols so that we can expand our relationship with people all over the world.
The handle grip is made of black bamboo, the hajiki which holds the umbrella open is made of wood, and bamboo nails are used to keep the rokuro, which connects the umbrella bones and the handle, in place.
Furthermore, stencil-dyed washi paper, which uses ombre gradation techniques in the dyeing processes to produce beautiful coloring, is used for the washi paper.
*Please note that these parasols may not be used in rainy weather.
Unryu (cloud dragon) paper is washi paper which has the long thin fibers of paper mulberry mixed in with pulp to create a cloud-like pattern. The unique texture highly improves its attraction as washi paper.
