■”Kanze Ryusui: Kobai Hakubai” Parasol Tailoring
This gorgeous Japanese umbrella depicts a view of water flowing through a beautiful landscape of red and white plum blossoms in the spring season, using gold-colored Kyo-yuzen Japanese paper.
The luxurious and gorgeous appearance of this umbrella is enough to show its presence as a Japanese decoration.
It cannot be used as a rain umbrella because it is not coated with oil for water repellency.
▪Kyo-yuzen Japanese paper
“Jizome” is the process of dyeing the base of the entire washi.
Next comes the “Irosashi” process, in which the paper is dyed using a mold frame. It is repeated as many times as the number of colors.
Finally, the paper is dried with a hot plate and warm air to produce gorgeous hand-dyed Yuzen Japanese paper.
