Rainy Days Never Dampened our Spirits: The Umbrellas.co.uk Story

At Umbrellas.co.uk, we're not just umbrella specialists; we're weather enthusiasts, puddle splashers, and storm chasers (metaphorically speaking, of course). This haven for all things brolly was dreamed up by two brothers, Paul and Carl Simmonds, back in 2023.

Our Humble Beginnings

Growing up in the verdant (and often soggy) county of Cheshire in South Manchester, rain wasn't an inconvenience, it was an adventure. We navigated muddy fields, built epic dams in garden streams, and chased rainbows with nothing but a trusty brolly and boundless imagination. But let's be honest, even the most dedicated puddle jumper gets tired of flimsy, wind-defying contraptions that snap in a gentle breeze.

That's why we decided to do things differently. We envisioned a world where umbrellas weren't just an afterthought, but stylish companions, trusty shields against the elements, and even statement pieces.

Creating Umbrellas.co.uk

Umbrellas.co.uk became our canvas. We scoured the globe for the finest materials, from sleek carbon fibre to playful polka dots. We partnered with artisans who poured their passion into creating canopies that were as strong as they were beautiful. And we built a team of rain-loving experts who are always on hand to help you find the perfect brolly, whether you're a dapper city slicker or a festival-fiending free spirit.

Today, Umbrellas.co.uk is more than just a website: it's a community of weather warriors, united by a love for adventure, good design, and (of course) staying dry. We're proud to offer a curated collection of umbrellas that are as functional as they are fashionable, all while maintaining a commitment to ethical sourcing and sustainable practices.

So, next time the skies open up, don't hide under a flimsy excuse for an umbrella. Join us at Umbrellas.co.uk and embrace the rain in style. After all, a little drizzle never hurt anyone - especially when you've got the perfect brolly by your side.

Cheers to stormy skies and sunny smiles,

The Umbrellas.co.uk Team
