Handcrafted with great detail and care for textures and elements. 

An umbrella in Japan is not just beautiful, but also symbolic.
In the beginning, an umbrella in Japan was called a "kinugasa" (a silk umbrella).
The kinugasa was considered a status attribute, indicating a person's high governmental rank. The red silk umbrella was a symbol of imperial power.
But gradually umbrellas were transformed from insane luxury into everyday items for the samurai and merchant class.
At the beginning of the Edo period (1600-1868) umbrellas became a part of everyday life for ordinary people.
Thanks to the creativity of Japanese craftsmen, they became more comfortable and lighter. The umbrellas were made using locally produced oiled paper. But most importantly, the umbrellas began to fold. Hence their new name - wagasa (Japanese umbrella). The umbrellas were made only of natural materials, using bamboo, washi paper and wood.
It took the master several months to present the finished product. He had to precisely adjust the length and fasten the bamboo ribs by tying them together with horsehair. He would then glue the fins together with persimmon juice treated paper. The craftsman would then paint the paper top, which was then further oiled. The final processing of the product was done by applying varnish on wooden parts of the umbrella. The umbrellas were taken to the field, where they were dried in the sunlight. A vagasa made in this way could last for ten years if handled with care.

To ensure the longevity of your items

General Care

Try to avoid contact with water (especially swimming pools) as this can reduce the lifespan of your jewelry. However, if you do forget to take off your jewelry in the shower, don't worry, just simply dry the jewelry with a cloth so that all moisture is removed. Be careful and avoid exposure to perfumes, hair products, lotions, soaps, oils and household chemicals. Always remove jewelry before exercising or cleaning.

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver can be cleaned with a sterling silver polishing cloth. Avoid chlorine water and rubbing with paper products, which can scratch the silver. Store pieces in a cool dry place away from light and air to prevent excess tarnishing. We recommend using the sterling silver-specific liquid jewelry cleaner. For pieces containing stones, pearls and crystals, we recommend using the polishing cloth only, as the liquid can damage some stones.

Gold Plated Sterling Silver

Always separate from other jewelry to prevent scratching and remove before showering or cleaning. Polish gently using a yellow gold-specific polishing cloth.

Caring for Plated Jewelry

Due to the nature of plated jewelry, we suggest following these guidelines to maintain your piece.

Scented products such as perfumes, colognes and lotions contain chemicals that can react with plating and discolor or fade jewelry. Body chemistry and moisture can also affect a plated piece – a high skin PH balance will greatly speed up wear on a plated item.

Plated jewelry should never be worn during activities that involve water such as showering or pool/beach activities as chlorine and saltwater will affect the plating. When removing jewelry for these purposes be sure to store it in a dry area. Friction or contact with a hard surface can produce scratches or wear to the piece.

If necessary, use warm water with a mild, fragrance-free soap to clean plated items. Gently pat dry with a clean cotton or microfiber cloth. Most jewelry cleaners contain chemical elements that will slowly wear and fade plating over time.

Following these steps will help ensure the longevity of your jewelry!
