While we’ve always invested in equipment and streamlining operations, we continue to work from our original purpose built factory in Yatala, Brisbane.

Our turn-key service begins with our unique umbrella designs, which are all certified by structural engineers and wind rated to meet or exceed Australian standards.


Our focus has always been to make sure customisation doesn’t have to be cost prohibitive, because as a designer and manufacturer we value choice.

These days we can make changes at the touch of a button, but we still enjoy personally testing every umbrella, before we deliver it to you.
