L’Original is the brand’s iconic umbrella. Fitted with eight ribs and a manual opening, its frame is both compact and solid. Its main feature is its handle : made from GEL, the ergonomic design allows the handle to adapt to the shape of your hand giving you a comfortable and firm grip.
This season, Beau Nuage is forging a strong bond with the planet and its oceans by designing all of its umbrella fabrics from recycled plastic bottles. To celebrate this commitment, the Italian artist Pietro Tenuta, alias Maniaco d’amore, revisits the cloudy universe of Beau Nuage by signing a poetic and ephemeral collection for all rain lovers! The union around the world of Universal Blue or the liberated whales of Pacific Blue perfectly complement our range of classics … Like a bottle in the sea, the Pacific Blue carries a message, that of the waters of all the oceans of which we must take care. Universal Blue is a surge of love and union around nature. It is a call for unity and for peace.
Folded umbrella size: 20.5cm
Weight of the umbrella inside the cover: 350g
The frames of these umbrellas are designed to be both flexible and sturdy. It is important that the joints are very strong because these are the parts that break most often. The joints are made from stainless nickel rivets. On the contrary, the ribs must be flexible enough not to put too much stress on the junctions. To do this, Beua Nuagel use strong and light materials such as aluminum and especially fiberglass. The mast of our umbrellas must be both light and robust, impossible to twist. They generally use steel and aluminum alloys to ensure both aspects.
Finally, these fabrics are much denser than average (200 threads / in2 instead of 180 or 190 on conventional umbrellas), which makes them more pleasant to the touch. They are also coated with a Teflon® coating: the drops slip on them without ever entering!
The cover is made with triple-layer absorption technology, which is now a patented technology. The inner layer, known as absorption, is a special microfiber fabric capable of absorbing up to 200 times its weight in water. The intermediate layer, called repulsion, is a perfectly waterproof material, whose role is twofold. It not only helps to keep the outer layer always dry, by preventing drops from passing through, but also constantly brings the drops back into the microfiber, allowing it to air out and therefore dry effectively. Finally, the outer layer is an umbrella canvas coated with a Teflon® coating, completely hydrophobic and pleasant to the touch.
