We visited an umbrella factory in Kyoto and watched their production method.
The Onouchi Syoten is established 1903 and they still make umbrellas carefully by hands from cutting of fabric to final finishing. We ordered them to make our umbrellas from Furoshiki(cotton wrapping cloth) and it went beyond what we have expected. We are very lucky to have a chance to work with a precious factory which has such a long history. The umbrellas will be released next spring.

hanelca’s items are now available in Kurashiki, Okayama prefecture. As you know, hanelca’s products are made from canvas fabric produced in Okayama, and we are very happy to have our items are shown in the beautiful town. The name of the shop is ONO+8186 which is located in Kurashiki Bikan area. It is very nostalgic historical area with old buildings and houses and it’s one of the famous tourist attraction in Japan. Certainly worth seeing!
