The Umbrella Workshop began in South West France originally producing branded golf related goods for French marketing agencies and household brands. The umbrella and bowler hat are synonymous with the Victorian Englishman, and we happily played on the stereotype!
Right from the start QUALITY & DESIGN were at the forefront of any promotional products we developed and we quickly established a strong client base who understood the need for premium quality promotional items.
The Managing Director returned to the UK in 2010 and established an office in the heart of Bath. We have been working hard to create quality branded tailor-made umbrellas for businesses large and small. We have built up an impressive client base and pride ourselves on our experience, attention to detail and excellent customer service.
We work with global factories from Shanghai to Sheffield, and regularly visit our manufacturing partners to ensure our exacting standards are implemented. All our factories are regularly independently audited to ensure processes such as quality control are closely adhered to and that environmental and social conditions are acceptable.
Our umbrellas are unique, can be Pantone-matched for a variety of industries including retail, hotels, restaurants, financial services and charities around the world.
We are a friendly creative team and work hard to deliver a solution to suit any brief we receive.
Umbrella Workshop tailoring
Premium finishes and detailing
How we make custom promotional umbrellas is unique to your brand. We use and combine a number of different print processes: dye sublimation, silk screen, 4 colour process print, transfer print, embroidery and good old fashioned sewing and tailoring, all to create breathtaking promotional umbrellas. We are passionate about our umbrellas and only use high quality products to create both a durable and visually stunning promotional item.
We have our own in-house design team who can work with you to create a truly bespoke product. As many of our umbrellas are custom and made from scratch, we are able to colour match frames as well to create a truly unique umbrella for you. We can also go one step further with other customisation options such as engraving the handle, printing the tie wraps and sleeve plus many other bespoke finishing details.
