Bean umbrella is a subminiature umbrella that can be conveniently used whenever it rains or snows unexpectedly.
Traditional umbrellas cannot be easily carried all the time because of its size and weight.
This results in encountering a bewildered situation when it suddenly rains.
On the contrary, the Bean unbrella can be flexibly folded and opened because of its new structure; it is composed of only the wireframe and the vinyl, minus the weight of the metal weight of normal umbrellas.
It is portable all the time because of its light weight and small size, and can be easily used in emergency situations.
