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.
