Eave Umbrella / Umbrella

Eave Umbrella
Eave Umbrella

Eave Umbrella is a special designed umbrella. The edges of umbrella fabric can bend upward like eaves of the roof. So the raindrop won’t slide around when we use it at rainy day. Instead, all the drops will gather at a small gap of the edge where we should pay attention in order not to allow the raindrops slide on nearby people.
When we use ordinary umbrella, raindrops usually falls around from the umbrella edge and makes people next to us wet and embarrassed.
