Eco-friendly Umbrella- Red
L’Original is the brand's iconic umbrella. Fitted with eight ribs and a manual opening, its frame is both compact and solid. Its main feature is its handle : made from GEL, the ergonomic design allows the handle to adapt to the shape of your hand giving you a comfortable and firm grip.
Its thick canopy (200 threads/in2)is made with recycled plastic bottles and has a Teflon®coating, repealing water effectively.
As for every one of Beau Nuage’s umbrellas, l’Original is supplied with an absorbent cover, whose three-layers technology allows you to put your wet umbrella into a bag or a pocket and keep it dry.
NB. Each Beau Nuage umbrella has its own unique name! You can find it on the back of its label.
Folded umbrella size: 20.5cm
Weight of the umbrella inside the cover: 350g
The frames of our umbrellas are designed to be both flexible and sturdy. It is important that the joints are very strong because these are the parts that break most often. Our joints are made from stainless nickel rivets. On the contrary, the ribs must be flexible enough not to put too much stress on the junctions. To do this, we use strong and light materials such as aluminum and especially fiberglass. The mast of our umbrellas must be both light and robust, impossible to twist. We generally use steel and aluminum alloys to ensure both aspects.
Finally, our fabrics are much denser than average (200 threads / in2 instead of 180 or 190 on conventional umbrellas), which makes them more pleasant to the touch. They are also coated with a Teflon® coating: the drops slip on them without ever entering!
