If you like having the benefit of an automatic umbrella stored way in your handbag for emergancies then they don’t get much better than the Totes Auto Open and Close Umbrella. We have plain colours of blues, grey, pinks and black but also patterned designs.
I particularly like the black and white designs of speckled dots and the new multi circles with its new curved handle which sits in the palm of your hand very comfortably.
Continuing with the animal print theme, this range has a new purple snake skin pattern. Now being honest I’m not one for animal prints but even I like this one. The vivid purple colour is perfect for this seasons trends and looks stunning when open.
We really like the new handles on the Totes Auto open and close umbrellas, slightly larger but still keeping the umbrellas slim qualities. I think the gents will appreciate the new handle too as the plain black version is the perfect size to slip into a briefcase. The span when open is 89cm in diameter so is ever so slightly wider, perfect size to cover wider shoulders too.
Also new in is the Totes Mini Round Umbrella, these umbrellas have a 5 section folding frame and although you may need a wee bit of practice folding them up, they do fold up every neat and once folded up are just 15cm in length. They are the perfect umbrella for carrying around for emergencies.
The new designs start with a plain vivid purple umbrella, this is a fabulous colour and is the perfect colour for winter 2010 trends. We also have another animal print, this time its a striking black and white zebra print and features a soft pleated wrist cord. The next one is the Red and White Dot umbrella on a black background. This is a fun striking umbrella and it full of retro charm. It also features a beaded charm on the matching red wrist cord.
These compact small umbrellas would make great stocking fillers and priced around £16-£18 are great value for money.
