Table in the Corner present The London Brolly Company

Modular customisable umbrellas that can be returned and fixed when broken and the parts reused.

A modular designed umbrella with easily assembled parts requiring no glue or screws. Customisable by the user who can choose various colours, patterns and handles. The umbrellas are made from recyclable materials and once in circulation new umbrellas will be made using the parts of old ones.

The umbrellas are distributed in two ways:

1. online via The London Brolly website where customers can design their umbrella and have it delivered to them in the post or via a click and collect service.

2. through our partner distributors including selected cafes, banks, and retailers where customers can pay for their umbrella in-store.

In the event of the umbrella breaking, it can be returned to us online or to a distributor where the customer will either:

- get some of their money back with the parts of the broken umbrella reused to make new ones

- or the option of having their umbrella fixed and returned.
