Japanese traditional umbrella Wa-gasa

Do you know Wa-gasa?
This is a Japanese traditional umbrella.

These patterns are refined very much. And the prop of the umbrella is made with a bamboo work.They are very beautiful.

A Japanese tradition industrial art object is not a product of the mass production. The craftsman who was an expert of makes one product with great deal of effort each.

However, the craftsman of the Japanese tradition industrial art object decreases.
I want to prevent that this history is cut off. Because the history lasted several hundred years.
