Umbrella- hidden

The traditional umbrella still uses the traditional way to fixe umbrella cloth, and umbrella cloth and frames are exposed outside of the umbrella bone. This creation of umbrella is used memory-wire instead of steel frames, and extendable fabrics to replace normal fabrics. When the umbrella is closed, wires and special fabrics will be received inside of bone. The umbrella now looks like a walking stick, which is simple and beautiful appearance.
