The stretcher, designed to last thousands of opening and closing cycles, is made of a single piece of flexible material with integrated joints
Unlike traditional umbrellas, which are made up of a multitude of pins and rigid rods that break easily, our particular patented geometry allows it to flex elastically, avoiding deformation and damage.
The number of components has been considerably reduced, from over 130 in traditional umbrellas to just 24 in Pluvi. The assembly has been simplified by replacing the traditional screws and hinges with long-lasting snap-fit, increasing the overall reliability of the umbrella.
Resist the wind
The handle and the shaft have been designed to take full advantage of the high flexibility of the whole umbrella when it is subjected to wind stress.
Few components to minimize the chances of failure and all produced by the same injection moulding technology. Our unique technical polymer, used for every single element of the umbrella, has been specifically developed to be easily recovered and reused for the manufacturing of new products.
