Unwet Umbrella / umbrella

Unwet Umbrella
Unwet Umbrella

One of the biggest problems with umbrellas is that when you fold it up on a rainy day to go inside you have to touch the wet area of the umbrella and can often get your shoes or clothes wet. I propose the Dry Umbrella to prevent this from happening.

An umbrella is usually folded in 3 steps. So when you’re folding it on rainy day, you have to touch the wet outside of the umbrella. But Dry umbrella is folded in 4 steps of material in metal ribs. Your hands will only touch the dry underside of the umbrella.
