GRIP UMBRELLA / Umbrella Handle


When using the folding umbrella, there is often nowhere to place it if it is taken into shops, so we have to take it by hand or place it on the floor. If you put the umbrella in the barrel, it will drop into the bottom of the barrel and be difficult to take out. Thus, we start to think other placement possibilities. We realized that the soft anti-sliding materials and the simple hook principle are the perfect and beneficial solutions, hoping it can provide people with more convenience when using umbrellas rather than to make the convenient umbrella an annoying burden.
