Product DetailsThis umbrella makes best use of its material, which is strong and big-boned. It gives simple but chic image with bamboo and Washi paper. This Wagasa is used for the greeting and send-off at the Japanese-style inns and Japanese restaurants.
It is finished with lacquer painted on the closed umbrella bones.
A single black lacquer is used for this umbrella.
The bones have a gentle curve to separate the weight of the snow, which makes the closed umbrella look roundish.
This is a simple and minimalized high quality Bangasa.
The craftsmen go into the mountains to cut the materials and make them.
All the parts are made of bamboo, except for the special parts.
The bamboo bones of the umbrella are cut one by one by hand, and the technique of burning and bending them to make the gentle curve of the umbrella is amazing.
The plain washi paper also has the unique texture of handmade washi, and no two are alike, making it a special piece.
It is also used by ryokan (Japanese inns) and ryotei (Japanese-style restaurants) for strolling in the garden or for transportation.
The nokiyakko are made of white and indigo handmade Japanese paper.
