People are afraid to purchase a high-quality umbrella because they are afraid they might lose it. And then they get wet, their umbrellas break or they just wear out.
Also, market is flooded with cheap models and there is no high-quality umbrella that blends tech with fashion design.
Kisha team decided to solve this problem by building high quality and durable umbrella that connects with persons smartphone and prevents loss. Kisha umbrella aims to disrupt current umbrella market.
The Kisha story started with a Facebook post of one of the founders who complained about long heavy raining in our hometown in Rijeka, Croatia and how it would be great to build an umbrella you could never lose. “It should be tied to your smartphone and let you know when you forget it.”, one of the founders said. That’s how everything started.
The technology for tracking items with a smartphone is still developing, but luckily, it’s stable and working. Kisha wanted to build things that last, not things you throw into the trash. That’s why they wanted Kisha umbrella to be the last one their customers will ever need.
Having lived in some of the rainiest cities in the world London, Vancouver, Rijeka and Milano, Kisha know how useful a solid umbrella can be and how sad you can get when you lose a good one. It took Kisha about eight months to build the current model and launch the website in December 2014.
