Lean on me / Umbrella

Lean on me
Lean on me

We often have trouble to keep the rain-soaked umbrella after using it. 'LEAN ON ME' is easy to be kept against any kinds of walls, providing more convenience to the users in the process of keeping.
Entering indoors with rain-soaked umbrella, we have to seek a proper place to keep it for its water. But in the public facilities, it is hard to find a place to keep an umbrella, so people put the it against the wall or find somewhere to hang it.
'LEAN ON ME' is cut to have optimum angle to lean against the wall with stable shape when the handle and the top of umbrella are contacted to the wall.
