If any of our readers are familiar with this weekend’s episode of Strictly come Dancing, then you may have noticed some rather boastfully stylish brollies on display during Ore & Joanne’s dance. There is a bright array of umbrellas on display, the ‘Wood Stick’ in red, yellow and blue and the main attraction of the act; the ‘Warwick’ in beige. This prompts the question, is there such a thing as a famous umbrella? We think so! Don’t try and deny it, you’re all really more interested in our quality brollies than the dancers, right?
So if you want to steal the show, feel free, as all these products are available on our site:
We were asked to supply a number of umbrellas for an installation at Radio 1’s Big Weekend. The umbrellas were hung from two large trees at Powerham Castle in Exeter, the venue for the event. We’re really grateful to Jon McMullan, of Made Up Ltd, for the photograph.
Our sister company Cave Innovations has a range of outdoor products. Are you looking for somewhere dry to keep your bikes outside? Need somewhere to keep the kids toys in the garden? Want more storage space when you’re out and about in your motorhome? A quick and easy place for a mobility scooter. You can do it all with a Bike Cave, a TidyTent, Campa Cave or Scoot-a-Cave.
We confident you’re going to love this new range of pagoda style umbrella. The first of the nine models is this superb looking Cream Umbrella with black stripes around the canopy. They’re great quality and incredibly feminine. Featuring a spring loaded auto open mechanism these umbrellas are full length at 90cms and provide plenty of cover with that big canopy 90cms wide. The Shaft, frame, spoke tips and and top spike are all chrome steel while the spokes themselves are fibreglass. The handle is a neat, fabric covered crook design.
“I found your webpage late Monday evening California, U.S. time and promptly ordered an umbrella. Imagine my shock when it arrived Wednesday morning of the same week. That is unbelievable service. It is not true what the song says: that “It never rains in Southern California”, so I am looking forward to using my new Falcone in the “El Niño” weather. My only observation was that the shipping package had seen quite a bit of abuse during it’s journey. (The umbrella arrived fine.) You might think of switching to more sturdy packaging for international shipments. Maybe an architects tube. I will definitely do more business with this establishment.”
Brand New. These are probably the strongest umbrellas on the market. We have seen proof that they can take winds of 130kph, though they are officially rated at a “mere” 100kph (that’s still 60mph!). Available in a choice of colours in both full length and telescopic travel versions.
