It’s Raining Mad… Alleluia!

Finally someone came up with a fix to the poke-your-eye-out umbrellas we all know, own, broke, and maybe lost. You can’t control the weather and crowded streets, but you can control how much damage you do to your the guy next to you on the street corner. Blunt Umbrellas use radial tensioning systems to redirect, transfer and distribute the effort used in opening the umbrella throughout the entire canopy surface. This creates a strong, aerodynamic umbrella with no sharp points. Putting it bluntly.

Aerodynamic and Also Quite Cool Looking

Technology finally rains down innovative design!

Umbrella, pretty Bella.

You know it when you see it. Something that you glance to and say, “ahhh cute”. That was my reaction when I looked at the sweet umbrellas manufactured at Santa Barbara Umbrella. Its raining outside and tulips are popping up everywhere so these are a perfect anecdote to wet spring days (and sunny ones ahead). Originally inspired by classic European market umbrellas, they to offer innovative and exciting new umbrella styles to meet the demanding needs of the design community. Thanks SBU! I can already taste the Lemoncello.
