Nishijin Parasol - Avorio
Nishijin textile of cotton
A parasol made with Kyoto's traditional craft "Nishijin textile". As a feature of Nishijin-ori, you can enjoy how the pattern looks and the color changes depending on the angle at which the light hits it.
In addition, we paid particular attention to the patterns and colors of the weave on the back so that you can enjoy the back side of the Nishijin weave when you put the parasol on.
The partner is Kajikinran, who has a factory in Nishijin, Kyoto. I tried to weave with cotton, which is rare in Nishijin textiles.
Parasols made by craftsmen
We asked Onouchi Shoten, which was founded in 1903 in Kyoto, to make the parasol. The umbrellas are handcrafted by craftsmen, and they pay close attention to the tension of the fabric. This creates a beautiful curve and extends the life of the umbrella.
The cloth part here is called a potter's wheel wrap, and it is a manufacturing method that covers the potter's wheel part with cloth to protect the fingers when opening the umbrella. It is a delicate part that is omitted in mass production.
High light blocking rate and UV cut rate
It has become a highly practical parasol with a UV shielding rate (UV cut rate) of 99.6% and a light shielding rate of 99.53% without any special processing. In addition to the use of cotton, which is a natural material with high light-shielding properties, it is made possible by the fine weave that can only be achieved with Nishijin textiles.
