When sunlight shines through an open Japanese umbrella (Wagasa), gently illuminating the washi paper and underlying bamboo frame, a warm atmosphere is produced. This is what inspired us to create the KOTORI collection. This shade can folded like an umbrella for easy storage.

The Kyowa umbrella is carefully handcrafted one by one using Japanese paper, selected from some of the top producers in Japan. The bamboo bones are made by carefully splitting a piece of bamboo. You can enjoy the original textures of bamboo that changes over time.
As they are made of natural materials, every piece is not 100% identical which gives it a unique characteristic.
The Story of Hiyoshiya
Tradition is continuing innovation
Since its founding in the late Edo Period (19th century), hiyoshiya has been guided by the same philosophy "Tradition is continuing innovation" to breathe a new life into traditional crafts. Hiyoshiya's products inherit from five generations of expertise. They have been an instrumental part of Kyoto's international success, carrying forward the tradition and developing new products based on technologies used for the production of Japanese-style umbrellas.
