Traditional Chinese Paper & Bamboo Sun Parasols


Well, this glorious heatwave has certainly made it a very enjoyable week, and it looks like we are in for more warm and sunny weather in the UK this weekend too. In this weather there isn't much call for umbrellas, however, our parasols are very much sought after at this time of year, especially in this weather, so we thought we would take a look at more of these in our blog post today.

We looked at some of our designer pagoda parasols in a blog post the other week, so today I thought we would look at a range of parasols that are a bit less expensive, yet ideal for fashionable protection on a sunny day. Our collection of traditionally handmade chinese rice paper and bamboo parasols are designed to provide shade from the sun. Made in the traditional way, this type of parasol has been used for centuries in the East. And with the vast range of colours and designs available at Brolliesgalore, we can guarantee that you will be kept cool, whilst looking great!

These parasols are also becoming popular at outdoor weddings and events, as people use them as an accessory for a beautiful bride or as a party favour for your guests. Even if you are planning a summer garden party, these parasols make an excellent purchase, and can add a splash of colour and shade to the event. In addition to being practical accessories, these Sun Parasols are wonderful works of art and can be used as home or event décor!

So why not browse through the selection we have chosen for you today, and if you'd like to see our full range, visit our pages at Brolliesgalore here.
