Pocket Umbrella / Umbrella

Pocket Umbrella
Pocket Umbrella

We often get into the situation that getting caught in the rain without taking an umbrella. This Pocket Umbrella is aimed for improving the convenience of umbrella usage in the rain, which is very portable and of small size. You can hold this umbrella with both of your hands and fold it into “8” shape, and finally it became a smaller “o”. It could be carried in your handbag or somewhere else. The umbrella is made of a steel ring and a piece of waterproof cloth. The price of this umbrella should be low, and thus easily to be considered for lash-up use in the rain.
