Once upon a time there was a couple who fell in love with each other and with Mallorca under the rustling shade of a large straw umbrella.
They later wanted to recreate that vacation experience in their own garden back in chilly Germany. But unfortunately, they discovered there were no flexible, transportable straw umbrellas to be found anywhere. They learned that straw umbrellas are usually very heavy and rigid… and then came the ingenious idea: patent transportable straw umbrellas in a variety of sizes and manufacture them for all to enjoy. Since we made our discovery, we now create straw umbrellas for everyone – from diameters up to 5 feet for the coziest balcony oases all the way up to 16.5 feet for indoor/outdoor use.
