The Jyanome (Slender umbrella) production process does not differ much to the Bangasa (sturdy umbrella), but the stretchers are thinned to produce a slender and light Wagasa. The inner sideof the Wagasa has decorative coloured strings, making them a Wagasa attractive for their refined beauty. There is an abundance of colors and patterns making Jyanome popular with both men and women.
Japanese umbrellas are being used as versatile interior decoration.In Japan they express Japanese hospitality, and overseas they are being displayed in new and unique ways.Japanese umbrellas are being used with the display stand “Shitsurae”and lit up in Japanese restaurant interiors. We are delighted to hear reports from pleased customers who say the umbrella lighting “transforms the whole room into a harmonious and relaxing space.”True Japanese umbrellas really draw people in with their charm.
Our traditionally crafted umbrellas are designed to be the ideal size for decoration and function. The 58cm length and 84cm width when opened shows off the beautiful design without being oversized and heavy. With a weight of only 250g carrying it with you is easy. The solid wood and bamboo frame keep the tradition and craftsmen ship alive while keeping the Jyanome strong and durable.
