This environmentally friendly handmade umbrella has been made to look naturally beautiful.
It has been made because the alternative, a cheap, throw-away plastic umbrella made from non renewable resources, does not last and takes over a lifetime to disintegrate when disposed of
Handmade using fast-growing bamboo and sustainable monkey pod wood each segment of the umbrella has been carefully designed and refined by Alison Schutt and made by a different team of skilled artisans in Thailand
Our team practises the principles of Fairtrade, making sure that artisans and craftspeople receive a fair price for their goods and are paid both in advance and immediately upon completion of manufacture
Adherence to minimum wage and social security laws, work-place happiness and safety, gender equality, child protection, environmental awareness and protection are all strictly observed
We have visited and worked very closely with the team of artisans in Thailand to achieve and produce a stylish, refined, plastic free, fair trade umbrella that is designed for both sun and rain
