Roly Poly / Umbrella

Roly Poly

Umbrellas are a helpful product, but they have a crucial weakness in storage. Imagine you take a wet umbrella inside. You can put it in an umbrella-case if there is one. But it is rare to find one, and you might lose it. So we usually hang it on the table or lay it on the floor. But they always fall off and get dirty with dust. Therefore, we thought of an umbrella that can stand on its own. A Roly-Poly Umbrella that can stand on its own when you throw it from any angle or direction.
