We couldn't tell - too many. When we started asking our friends & family, we realized the problem was real. Everyone has lost at least one umbrella that they held dear.
So we set out to design and build the smartest umbrella in the world. But we didn't stop there. We wanted to create something special. Something different.
Kisha was born.
Yes, it's happened to us all. But with Kisha, this will never happen (as romantic as it may be). Kisha mobile app is built to protect you from the rain. Anytime & anywhere.
It reminds you when you leave it behind in any public place - just listen carefully to your smartphone. But Kisha doesn't stop there. The app has a built-in weather forecast so it tells you whether to take it in the morning (or any other time of the day).
Advanced features help you create safe locations so that you don't get bothered by notifications. If you lose your Kisha and don't hear your phone, you can find it on a built-in map. Sweet & simple.Play Video
Why create the smartest umbrella and not use the best possible materials? Or not add a touch of glamour? Kisha is built using a special framework that cannot be bent or broken by ordinary winds. Even if it bends during the strongest of winds we've experienced so far, its flexibility helps Kisha return to its natural state.
Add high precision & handmade stitching combined with corrosion-free materials, and you have a winner. Kisha will (probably) be the last umbrella you'll ever buy.

The Kisha app will let you know the weather forecast for the coming day. But you can also set up the number of notifications so that you don't get bothered on a sunny day.
...and doesn't annoy you with hundreds of other notifications

After a week of (impressively accurate) precipitation warnings, I’m sold on the Kisha’s iCharms — not to mention bone-dry. Actually, the Kisha did fail once, but that was my fault. The app warned of an eight per cent chance of precipitation. So I took a gamble — and learned some harsh lessons.

This umbrella is armed with Bluetooth and a companion app, so it can alert you when you're parted from it (or leave it on the bus). It's location-aware, so if you place it in a designated "safe zone" such as your house, it won't bother you. But if rain is forecast, it will then ask to be brought along.

It's time to stop the endless cycle of forgetting your umbrella, buying a new one and then inevitably losing it. The Bluetooth-enabled Kisha umbrella connects to an app that notifies you if there's a possibility of rain in the day's forecast and will even send an alert if you leave the area without your umbrella in hand.
