Do you want one? There you go.
Scotchguard, water repellent textile sprays and nano sprays are wonderful stuff, we highly recommend them- they are easily available online. These parasols are glamorous and gorgeous divas and intended primarily as sun shades so please don’t get them too wet. A few splodges are fine, just make sure they’re fully dried off before you put them away. Treat them as you would your cushions.
Our digitally printed parasols are made using waterproof canvas, and will be more water resistant, however for the longest and happiest life for your parasol we advise you to bring them inside during inclement weather.
Please under no circumstances use any of the parasols in windy weather conditions. A fall will damage them.
For strong sunlight we advise the cream coloured ones for longer colour- no matter how hardy the fabric, the sun is the most powerful bleach. These are handmade textiles so please be prepared for some sun fade, adding to the character of the piece. There are sun protector sprays readily available online, Scotchguard and Sunguard are amazing.
On first opening your bamboo parasol you may find it rather stiff because of the new bamboo and stiff fabric. Be assured it does get easier. We recommend that you open the top half the wrong way up- pushing gently against the floor until you see the peg hole in the pole, then put the peg in. Once the parasol is open, turn it the right way up and put the two halves together. Please don't push the parasol beyond its limits. (Cher, Etta, Liberace, Nina, Tracy, Stevie, Whitney)
All the bamboo parasols are held together by a peg which is visible through a hole in the fabric at the very top. Do not worry! This is how it's made and every parasol will have one, it won't tear or get any larger. It is invisible when the parasol is up.
All the parasols come in two halves with a storage bag. Stands are not included.
If your parasol isn't in a table you need a heavier stand weighing 20kg minimum. The parasol poles are 35mm diameter.
Our parasol stand fits all our bamboo parasols.
Every parasol is unique with its own eccentricities. The materials used in the parasols vary and are mostly handmade. Please be prepared to carry out a little care on your fair weather friend
Please don't use them in windy weather conditions, it's not a good idea.
In the unlikely event that the fabric develops a hole this is easily mended with needle and thread. It is simply made and simple to repair. Store your parasol in its bag as upright as possible to avoid irritation.
