3 Reasons Japanese Women Prefer Black Umbrellas
The idea of using an umbrella to shield yourself from the sun can feel like a foreign concept to some people. And some may wonder “why does it need to be black?” Here are three reasons Japanese women prefer black umbrellas.
- To avoid heatstroke: According to research done in Japan, using an umbrella is much more effective at blocking the sun and sweating than using a hat.
- To protect against UV rays: If you use an umbrella, you can protect yourself against UV rays from direct sunlight, which can cause damage to the skin. Umbrellas with UV ray blocking technology are perfect for this.
- To soak up the sun’s rays: The color black soaks up the sun’s rays more effectively, and cuts UV rays. It can also absorb light reflected from the pavement or other reflective surfaces, even from the inside.
Quality Products That Are Crafted by Hand
1. Wooden Frames
Wooden frames are used to plan out the shape and how much fabric will be needed for an umbrella. Artisans adjust the frames several times to get the dimensions just right.
2. Fabric Cutting
The wooden frames are used to measure out and cut fabric. This is a process that requires careful concentration even from the most skilled of artisans.
A special sewing machine for making umbrellas is then used to sew the triangles of fabric together.
4. Sewing Fabric to the Tips
The combined fabric is then sewn onto the tips of the umbrella ribs. This requires a special method of sewing to ensure the fabric and the tips don’t come apart.
Lastly, the ribs and the fabric are sewn together. The tension of the fabric is checked carefully throughout the finishing process.
An Elegant Design Loved by All Ages
The jacquard flower pattern of this umbrella has a slightly glossy finish, and makes for a refined and elegant design that suits people of all ages. You won’t be able to take your eyes off of the expert handiwork of the Japanese artisans that have crafted this item.
