Twist Umbrella / Umbrella

Twist Umbrella
Twist Umbrella

It is so annoying to touch the wet umbrella for rolling after folding.
Don't need to touch your wet umbrella to roll or fix. Just twist the handle so that it would be automatically rolled.
It works by special structure which is applied to body frame and handle. It rotates on one way for rolling ribs of umbrella which is made from High-elastic plastic.
Embossed patterns are on around the handle so people could feel fun like matching puzzle.
