Parasoul brings you a vibrant range of plain, spotted and striped designs perfect for the beach, outdoor events, music festivals and races as a summer umbrella or simply as the perfect final touch to any outfit. Our beautiful parasols have become increasingly popular for weddings, especially for those held outdoors; and with our selection of delicate handmade paper parasols for the sun, and waxed cotton for the sun or the rain, you really are covered for the big day.
Our parasols are beautifully hand-made by happy and well-paid ladies (no child labour here) and the factory has recently won a Unesco craft award. We’re very conscious of the need for a win-win situation, and so 10% of our profits are be donated back to help an aid organisation called “Shoulder-to-Shoulder".
Traditionally made in Asia, parasols were in vogue in western societies in the 1920’s. Now with our heightened awareness of the dangers of the sun, parasols are making a comeback as a fashionable yet functional accessory.
