When I lived in Melbourne Australia, I left my beloved Burberry umbrella in a cafe. When I returned, it was too late. It had been taken and my heart sank. Then it started to rain!
9 years on, I refuse to buy or shop for an umbrella over £5 for fear of losing it. Until I discovered Kisha, the world’s first Smart Umbrella that you can’t possibly lose!
Kisha tells you the weather forecast in the morning and sends you a notification to your smartphone when you leave her in a cafe, bar, restaurant or shop. She is built to last with perfect stitching and finishing with a 3 year warranty to back up the workmanship. So no more umbrellas in bins after a fight with the wind!
What’s more, Kisha looks like a normal umbrella but with a fashionable and tech twist! Wirelessly connected to your smartphone via bluetooth, the tech is invisible and the umbrella is stylish. For all my fellow fashion conscious and tech savvy ladies, fashion and functionality have finally merged.
Priced from just $69.95US (approximately £50 GBP) and a fantastic new colourful range to choose from, the biggest challenge is to pick just one umbrella!
Kisha umbrella autumn-winter 2015/2016 collection
My personal favourites are the Kisha Optical Illusion Limited Edition and the Kisha Classic Pink to add some colour to the gloomy weather in the UK!
Marija Butkovic, a former lawyer from Croatia, now based in London, is the Head of Business Development for this innovative start up. Marija tells me that she and the founders and creators of Kisha are from Rijeka Croatia, a seaport located in Kvarner Bay off the Adriatic Sea. With no dry season, it’s no wonder they came up with the idea of the smart umbrella.
Kisha also means rain in Croatian. Not only is Kisha a smart umbrella, she has just taught us a new word in another language.
For Christmas 2017, Kisha is offering a $25 off all their umbrellas! Never lose your umbrella again and get Kisha here!
