Inverted Umbrellas

This is our third season, with this new concept in umbrellas. It is very convenient when it comes to getting in and out of cars. Since it folds upwards, it is super easy to close as you are closing your car door - keeping you and your car interior dry (by closing the umbrella fully, the water stays inside the umbrella).
*made of pongee cloth, durable fibreglass ribs, and a double layer of cloth making it sturdy umbrella
*the handle design is cushioned making it not only more comfortable, but can be hands free too
*available in newsprint, clouds, and Gerber daisy
