The bamboo framework is pegged with smaller poles inserted into larger ones. We have two designs using different types of Japanese paper.
The taller one is made with Haku Un Washi (white cloud Japanese paper) which is usually used for shoji sliding screens and is 3-4 times as strong as a similar weight of tissue paper.
The shorter one is made with un ryu washi (cloud dragon Japanese paper) which has silk strings and threads pressed into one side.
Both have a platform on the bottom for a candle, oil lamp, or electric light.
