Friendship Umbrella
Friendship Umbrella

Friendship umbrella is all about sharing. It can be shared by turn on the soft light. When someone who needs the umbrella sees the light, he/she can go to the person holding this umbrella and ask if they can share the umbrella together. It’s also perfect for both one person and two persons using. It’s an oval-shaped umbrella. When there’s only one person using the umbrella, turn the long axis of oval-shaped as the direction you go forward. If there are two persons to share, turn the long axis of oval-shaped to your right and left. The wide space under the umbrella provides a comfortable distance between two persons who just met each other.
