The Founder

Sri C.K. Kasmi was born in the early part of the nineteen thirties in the Union Territory of Mahe. After completing college studies, he traveled extensively in “Ceylon”, one of the most prominent business hubs of South East Asia during that period of time. Ceylon Umbrellas were very popular in qualitative terms which were even exported to neighboring countries. He explored opportunities to gather technical aspects of the umbrella industry and returned after succeeding in the mission.

The idea to set up an Umbrella Manufacturing Industry always obsessed his aspirations and thus the birth of “COLOMBO UMBRELLAS”. It all started in a humble way in the year 1956, at Broadway, the business nerve centre of Ernakulam in those years. He upheld the virtues of quality and service always, due to which Colombo Umbrellas grew as a household name in the minds of the Keralites. He was always keen to be the first to introduce novel introductions and this made Colombo the best bet in this sector.
