Higasa parasols are originally made for protection against the sun, but I believe that it doesn't have to be restricted to that purpose. It can be used as a fashion item to bring out female attractiveness or as an interior objet with a Japanese taste.
Higasa parasols are everyday items for women in the summer in Japan, but at the same time, should be an item of beauty to bring out the most of the women's attractiveness. I hand craft each of my parasol to realize the "beauty of utilitarian objects." Please step into Tamio Shibata's world of KIMONO HIGASA.
