Stained glass isn't something people immediately associate with Japan (after all, European churches tend to monopolize the art), but this type of decoration was quite popular in the first decades of the 20th century during the reigns of the emperors Meiji and Taisho: Western influences were all the rage and you could often see some amazing stained glass in Ginza's cafes. If you would like a truly romantic walk in the rain, the Stained Glass Umbrella is exactly what you need!
The Stained Glass Umbrella is a unique spin on the vinyl/see-through umbrella motif that has been a trademark of any Japanese townscape since the 1950s. The stained-glass-style patterns have been carefully selected to recreate the vintage atmosphere of prewar Japan and it's made of sturdy polyethylene, polyester, glass fiber, and steel, so can withstand heavy rain. Large and comfortable, it is as practical as it is beautiful - and it really is beautiful!
The Stained Glass Umbrella features:
- Classic early 20th-century Japanese (Taisho-era) design
- Materials: polyethylene, polyester, glass fiber, steel
- Total length: approx. 90 cm (2'9")
- Rib length: approx. 60 cm (1'9")
