Hong Kong’s one and only umbrella expert — Mr Yau

Yau Yiu-wai, 61, is a fifth-generation member of the family running the umbrella business. His family started the trade by opening a shop in Guangzhou in 1842. Probably, Sun Nga Shing Umbrella Store is one of last standing stores in Hong Kong that still repair umbrellas. At the shop you’ll find numerous handcrafted umbrellas the owner Mr Yau has made over the years. Though they’re no longer for sale, Mr Yau is really nice and love to chat about how to upkeep your umbrellas. (Sources:
