A modern invention based on traditional Japanese umbrellas

Hiyoshiya is a time-honored traditional Japanese umbrella shop.Founded in Kyoto in the late Edo period (1600-1868), Hiyoshiya has been creating traditional Japanese umbrellas for five generations.

When a traditional Japanese umbrella is opened and held up to the sunlight, you can feel the warmth and brightness of the sunlight through the washi paper.The geometric pattern of the bamboo bones complements the perfect beauty of this Japanese tradition.

Recently, Hiyoshiya began designing interior decoration products based on the craft traditions used to make traditional Japanese umbrellas.KOTORI lamp line is our first major modern product line.

KOTORI lamps were born from Hiyoshiyafs passion for beauty and perfection.
We hope our KOTORI lamps will add warmth and comfort to your home and office life.

*The bamboo bones are made by splitting a single section of bamboo into very thin strips. The patina of the bamboo grows over time.
*The washi paper used for KOTORI lamps is very special. It is called
Ocho-shi (Imperial Court paper). It is said that high-born women in the Heian period (794-1185) wrote romantic letters on this type of paper. It is very flexible and durable and has a textile-like pattern.
*The shade can easily be removed from the body. Other shades can be used depending on the atmosphere of the room or seasonal influences.
*The shade, which can be folded away like a traditional Japanese umbrella,needs little storage space.
*The shade can be custom made from your favorite paper or fabric. Please enquire.
*Because each lampshade is made exclusively with natural materials, each one is slightly different, just like in the natural world.
*All shades are handmade by professional Kyoto craft masters.
