The Chinese were the first to wax and lacquer paper umbrellas.
Their innovation was designed mainly for protection against the sun. These parasols are feminine and delicate and perfect for shielding the harmful UV rays of the sun. They are all made from solid colored nylon on a bamboo frame. Bring them along for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park to keep yourself cool. At AsianIdeas.Com, we simply love paper parasol umbrellas. We wish to share this passion with you. Learn more about Chinese paper umbrella history.
