inverserella / umbrella


When you get inside holding a wet umbrella, the floor should be wetted
by dropped water. We sometimes use a plastic bag to warp our umbrella
to prevent safety, aesthetic problems. But it is a bad choice for our
environment to use plastic bags.

So this umbrella has been invented. It is designed to accumulate
water inside the umbrella when folded. This benefits easier maintenance.
