Here at The Umbrella Workshop, we pride ourselves on having made brollies for some really BIG brands: Bollinger, Bentley and Mandarin Oriental Hotels to name but a few! Companies like these often employ agencies to take care of promotional products like their logo umbrellas, but we’re just as happy working with more boutique brands looking for premium products with their logos on. So if you’re one of them and in need of a little extra assistance when ordering branded umbrellas, our friendly team at The Umbrella Workshop are here to help!
You have to admit, in the UK especially, that a brolly (or two) will always come in handy. So handy that some bright spark has started selling folding umbrellas from vending machines! It was only ever a matter of time. We spotted this one at a train station in the South West and would’ve given it a go – had we been caught without our old faithful Umbrella Workshop branded brolly.
