History

The shop associated with this craft, Leung So Kee, was established in 1885 in Guangzhou, and first moved to Hong Kong in 1941. The umbrellas sold there are very expensive because the umbrellas are of high quality and the shop would always help customers to repair their umbrellas at a very low price.
