Fulton umbrellas get geeky
Umbrellas are a fairly unloved part of the average accessory collection. I tend to have one tucked away in my car, one in the back of my shoe closet and I should have one in my bag...although more often than not I forget and get caught in the rain.
But Fulton have some very pretty umbrellas. And they're doing some pretty interesting things with umbrellas to make them more of a must-have item.
Firstly, they've created a UV umbrella (left). This might seem a little bizarre, but umbrellas to protect the skin from the sun have been popular in places like China and Japan for a while. They're calling it the Parasoleil, and it has a SPF of 50+. It comes in pink, yellow and cyan.
Their second innovation is a 'Tri-bella', an umbrella with three different handles. One handle is a spike you can implant into the ground, another with a clip to hold it to a table and a final standard handle.
Despite my pale skin, I think I'm more likely to use the Tri-bella. Do you think you'd use any of these?
