Catchment Umbrella / Umbrella

Catchment Umbrella
Catchment Umbrella

Although we hold umbrella in rainy day, our shoulder or backpack usually get wet because the water drop from the umbrella. Catchment Umbrella is designed with the concept of gutter to gather the rainwater into a particular position. Users can spin it to make the water outlet turn to the position that they will not get wet. Catchment Umbrella creates a dry and clean environment under the umbrella.
