【Fashion】”Wagasa”, the Japanese umbrella2013.02.08

Wagasa (和傘)is Japanese umbrella.

“和 Wa” means Japan or Japanese, “傘 Kasa” means umbrella.

Western umbrella is made by metal and cloth, but Japanese umbrella is made by bamboo and Japanese paper “和紙 Washi” or silk cloth “絹布 Kenpu.”

You don’t need to use needle and thread to make Japanese umbrella, just use glue paste.

Many ribs and red paper make Wagasa very beautiful.
