Japanese parasols - Protect yourself with elegance and tradition
Japanese umbrellas, also known as "wagasa", are traditional Japanese parasols made from bamboo and washi paper (traditional Japanese paper). They are used both as fashion accessories and as protection against rain and sun. Japanese umbrellas are usually handmade by experienced craftsmen, and can be found in a variety of sizes, shapes and patterns.
Japanese parasols have a long history in Japan, dating back to the Edo period (1603-1868). They were often used by court ladies and geishas to protect themselves from the sun during ceremonies and outings. Japanese parasols are also used for fashion shows, weddings and religious ceremonies.
Traditional Japanese designs such as cherry blossoms, bamboo leaves, birds and fish are often used to decorate Japanese parasols. Japanese umbrellas can be found in a variety of colours, ranging from bright and bold to more subdued and subtle.
Japanese parasols are considered symbols of beauty, refinement and protection. They can be used to add a touch of elegance to a look, or to protect from rain and sun.
