Wagasa
Japanese traditional umbrella

Solution

Hi! What I wanted to revive with this idea, was the beauty of the traditional japanese umbrellas. The true beauty of these umbrellas can be seen on the underside. There are dozens of evenly spaced ribs with carefully placed stitches and seams from the underneath. The sharp contrast between the wood of the ribs and the brightly colored karakami craft paper of the wagasa is amazing.
