Materials of impeccable quality

Different types of precious wood, solid carbon or fiber ribs depending on the model, silky fabrics... at the factory, the materials used for our French umbrellas are carefully selected. Rush, for its strength and light veil of natural varnish, will improve over time. Each chestnut handle is made by a craftsman from his isolated mountain plantation - he cuts, smokes and varnishes each branch of wood... The hornbeam handle comes from the Jura. The canvas is made from a polyester fabric selected for its silky feel and resistance to rain. The pole, made of beech or metal, is extremely sturdy. The carbon steel ribs fight the wind valiantly. As for the more flexible fiberglass ribs, they can withstand gusts of 155km/h without splitting.
