Parasols and Umbrellas

Parasols and Umbrellas

Handcrafted in China, our oiled paper parasols are beautifully hand painted and hand made with bamboo ribs and a bamboo handle. Inexpensive they make great chinese and japanese party decor!

These artfully created paper parasols were intended for everyday use in China before manufacturing was the source of all things personal. They've recently enjoyed a revival both in China and in the West and are appreciated both aesthetically and for the skill applied in making them by hand. The Paper is waxed and carefully attached to a spiral network of wood. A Truly amazing mechanical work of art.

China is believed to be the home of umbrellas, which are still universally used in the country. The earliest umbrellas are known to have existed at least two thousand years ago and were made of silk.

At present, umbrellas in China are made of various materials: oilpaper, cotton, silk, plastic film and nylon. As in other countries, they are used either against the rain or as parasols to give shade from the sun. Some are built on straight frames while others are collapsible. The best oilpaper umbrellas are generally thought to be those from Fujian and Hunan provinces. Their bamboo frames are treated against mould and worms. The paper covers are hand-painted with flowers, birds, figures and landscapes and then coated with oil so that they are not only practical but pretty and lasting. They may be used either in rain or sunshine.
