This beautiful Washi paper is made by collecting seasonal fallen leaves one by one, and sprinkling gold and silver leaf over the entire surface in the papermaking process.
Washi with leaves made for rain umbrellas takes about six months to complete after being commissioned.
The result is not only delicate handmade paper, but also thick and sturdy washi.
The process of making a single Wagasa involves making the bones that make up the framework, making the parts called the potter’s wheel that connect the bones, and making the Washi paper.
The process of making a single Wagasa involves a variety of craftsmen who make the bones that form the framework, the parts that connect the bones, and the paper.
Tsujikura’s craftsmen then make the umbrella into a single piece.
The inside of the completed umbrella also shows the beauty of the bamboo leaves through which it is made.
The result is a wagasa that makes you look forward to rainy days.
