Kimono Umbrella 雄峯-Yuho
Part of the Kimono Umbrella collection, this Japanese umbrella design is Yuho (majestic mountains). Crafted & upcycled from a traditional, antique Kimono that has been passed down through generations.
Coated in a Vintage Kimono fabric, glass fibre body and wooden handle. Making full use of the mountains on the spine, the work on this parasol is bold and resembles a Japanese painting, with the blue grating of the ground colour spreading grandly. In Japanese culture, mountains are the dwelling places of spirits called kami which respond to human ritual. The value of invisibility is a Japanese aesthetic and the dignity of the Kimono. The JUBAN is another type of Kimono made for males in the 1960s. JUBAN is not seen to appear usually but sophisticated people liked to wear this kind of designed JUBAN. Japan Kimono culture embodies this kind of playful spirit.
Canopy made from 100% silk of a Kimono, meaning it’s not suitable for rain as it would damage the silk – however, as the theme of this umbrella, it is perfect for the sun, weighing approximately 310 grams. The origin of the Kimono can be traced as far back as the Heian Period over 1200 years ago where straight cuts of fabric were sewn together to create a garment that fit every body shape.
Enjoy the radiance and vibrancy of this wonderful 雄峯-Yuho Kimono Umbrella on a hot summers day.

Kimono Collection: Sun parasols made from fabric cut from antique Kimono. The Kimono is a Japanese traditional formal costume, but due to fashion culture & trends changing, people don’t wear Kimono’s as often as they used to, so they have been upcycled & hand-crafted into a beautiful umbrella. The Yuho is just one example of several Kimono’s that have been modified into perfect parasols.
