We are a small family run manufacturer who have been in the business of making and wholesaling umbrellas for over 210 years. We are recognised as the longest established umbrella manufacturer in the UK. Please take a look at our company history page for more info about our timeline and key moments. We export worldwide and are currently seeking wholesale/retail partners, distributors and agents.
We are an ethical company and pride ourselves in promoting a sustainable supply chain. We work hard to source our materials from as close to home as possible from traceable, sustainable sources. We are members of Sedex , the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. We believe in investing in our workforce and retaining valuable skills which is why we are a Livaing wage employer. We promote good labour practices and encourage a safe, happy and productive workforce. And we offer flexible working to enable our staff to have a good work life balance.
We actively support local interests and charities including Providence Row, who help people get off the streets in the area; Five Talents who provide micro finance for startups and small businesses in developing countries; and Water Aid.
We offer a bespoke commission manufacturing service and can tailor the design and style of the umbrella to suit your unique specifications. This means we offer a fully factored service where we supply everything from fabric to buttons to content lable. Or alternatively you can supply your own fabric and we then cut, make and trim to orer. We have been in the business of making umbrellas for over 200 years and as such value the traditional production methods and hand craft skills which we encourage here in our workshop in Bethnal Green, East London. This combination of quality manufacture and style has been long recognised by local designers, retailers, well known labels, fashion houses and the promotions & incentives industry.
