■Jet Black with Gold Leaf/ Kinsai Kyo-yuzen Japanese Black Bamboo Parasol
This is a Japanese parasol with a delicate and austere golden flower design. As a Japanese display, even a single one has a strong presence.
It is also chosen as a gift for people overseas.
In order to highlight the beauty and delicate design of the umbrella, we used a transparent color for the lacquer applied to the surface of the closed umbrella.
The Yuzen appearance, which looks like a kimono clad in transparent lacquer on the glossy surface, is beautiful.
▪Hand-dyed Yuzen washi paper
“Jizome” is the process of dyeing the base of the entire washi, followed by “Irosashi” in which the paper is dyed using a mold frame.The “Irosashi” process 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.
There are various craftsmen who make the bones that form the framework, make the parts called the potter’s wheel that connect the bones, and make the Japanese paper before a single Japanese umbrella is completed.
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.
