Marius Solid Mens Umbrella

Our handmade solid sticks are the gold standard of mens umbrellas, marking their carriers with the hallmark of classic style and good taste. They're exceptionally strong and lovingly polished to accentuate the beauty of the single piece of solid natural maplewood.

The Marius Solid mens umbrella is fitted with a lightweight navy canopy and all the features you'd have found on products our crafters were making over 100 years ago, including hand stitched inside and outside rosettes and a mother of pearl furling button.

These features are crafted in contrasting orange to add a contemporary twist to this centuries old design.

It is named after Monsieur Jean Marius, a master purse maker who invented the folding umbrella in 1709. This made umbrellas lightweight and practical and soon every sophisticated Parisian was seen with a parapluie.

He was granted a five year royal privilege in 1710 by Louis XIV such that every umbrella made in France carried his trademark for that period.
