Traditional Japanese Wagasa umbrellas

Hiyoshiya has manufactured Japanese Wagasa umbrellas in Kyoto for over 160 years. Passing down tradition through continuous innovation, they strive to keep Japanese umbrellas relevant to modern life. In addition to traditional Kyoto-style umbrellas, Hiyoshiya utilizes washi paper and bamboo to create contemporary umbrella-inspired designer products such as pendant lights, lamps, and paper lanterns. Their Ryoten umbrella is made with an original water-repellent polyester fabric that looks like Japanese washi paper, an example of innovative finishes.
