We like the idea of having a handcrafted nice umbrella that you carry with pride and have with you for life (or almost). Especially around these Northern parts where downpour is a daily worry. Stop buying weird cheap umbrellas that don’t work and you loose, and never bother looking after! We want quality, appreciation of craft and responsibility back into umbrella-purchasing. Fox Umbrellas are “makers of the world’d finest umbrellas”. They carry a beautiful selection for Ladies & Gents … they also sell walking sticks and seat sticks (an item you rarely think of buying, but may need, now that you are reminded of its existence).
