Gilt “Kanze Ryusui, Red Plum and White Plum” (Japanese parasol)
This is a Japanese parasol with an auspicious design symbolizing running water, a symbol of future eternity, and the life force of the plum tree.
Skilled craftsmen hand-craft the parasol with attention to detail.
As a Japanese display, a single one is enough to make a statement.
It is also chosen as a gift for people overseas.
Hand-dyed Yuzen Washi
Jizome” is the process of dyeing the base of the entire washi, followed by “shiro-sappashi,” in which the paper is dyed using a mold frame. Color insertion is repeated as many times as the number of colors. Finally, a hot plate and warm air are used to dry the paper, resulting in gorgeous hand-dyed yuzen washi.
To make one Japanese umbrella, there are various craftsmen who make the bones that form the framework, the parts called “rokuro” (potter’s wheel) that connect the bones, and make the Japanese paper. Tsujikura’s craftsmen then make it into one Wagasa.
Wagasa is made through relationships between people, and these relationships are further connected to customers and to the next generation. With this meaning, we named Tsujikura’s Japanese parasols “En,” meaning “to connect. We will devote ourselves to making wagasa every day so that we will be able to expand our business with people all over the world through “En”.
Please note that it cannot be used in the rain.
