For those who appreciate a classic style combined with durability, look no further than the Domestic Solid umbrella from the Umbrella Shop. Originally designed in the 1970s here in Vancouver, we make it the same way today because it proves time and again to stand up to extended use in any kind of weather, while always looking its best. These long-standing umbrellas are still made in our Vancouver-based factory on sewing machines from the 1930s, just like they always have been.
Our Domestic Solid umbrellas have top-notch construction with the best materials we can find. The canvas-like fabric is heavy-duty and tear-resistant, while the exaggerated curve of the canopy provides the ultimate in protection from the elements. This line also comes in a wide variety of colours, so shoppers can choose what suits their style best.
We make the Domestic Solid with high-grade steel ribs, making this stick umbrella as strong as it is attractive. It is a smooth, manual open and close, which operates on a wooden shaft to add to the classic styling. The easy to hold, wooden handle has a gentle curve, allowing you to hook it on your arm when not in use. Best of all, the 37 inch diameter canopy offers the perfect protection for one while being easy to maneuver on the streets.
