Your umbrella may blow inside out in a gust of wind to protect itself from damage. BLUNT Umbrellas are designed to flip back the right way without damaging their structure.
Our iconic shape is all thanks to our patented BLUNT tips which open like miniature umbrellas within custom pockets at the canopy edge, resulting in a high-tensioned canopy.
BLUNT Umbrellas are designed in New Zealand and manufactured in Xiamen, China. Our umbrellas require a high level of expertise and skill given their unique hand-stitched design. We have worked closely with our highly skilled manufacturing partners for over 12 years, forming a unique relationship that is special to us as a small business.
Yes, we do. This is our Metro Umbrella. It's perfect for backpacks, satchels, laptop bags, shoppers, and medium to larger handbags.
We sell UV specific umbrellas that have a 50+ UPF rating. Our UV umbrellas block 99% of UV rays and are designed to reduce the temperature under the canopy. Shop our UV range here.
Our Limited edition models, Exec, Sport, and Classic models all come with carry sleeves. Our collapsible Metro model also comes with a matching cover sleeve to keep protected while in your bag. Our core range Coupe and Classic models do not currently come with carry sleeves, though we’re working on this. In the meantime if you need a carry or cover sleeve for one of your registered BLUNT’s you can purchase them via your B hub account.
Yes, none of our umbrellas contain any animal by-products.
Our Metro umbrella is built with a 360° spinning canopy to avoid damaging the core mechanism when accidentally knocked. This feature protects your BLUNT when navigating crowded streets and narrow walkways.
