In Hangzhou, an ancient Chinese city founded 2200 years ago, umbrella is not only a tool, but a unique cultural symbol. Meanwhile, bamboo craft, which has a long history in Hangzhou, is the representative of traditional local crafts. Combining both cultural and technical traditions, the designers create an iconic umbrella, “Bamboo Words (Xizi)” as a city gift. It is important to mention that the umbrella frame develops the structure of traditional Chinese bamboo umbrella and adapts bamboo-split craft to manufacture. In future, the designers plan to develop a family of iconic umbrellas basing on the prototype of Bamboo Words (Xizi).
