The Baobab Brolly is the Volvo of umbrellas

When you think of a Volvo, you think of a car that tows the fine line between being aesthetic but also having a reputation for being robust and reliable. The Baobab Brolly too shares that same image. With a steel-nickel frame, and a high-density fabric clad, the entirely handmade Baobab Brolly was designed to do two things. Look good and last long… And it was designed to not do one thing.

You Need to Be Seen as an Authority

--> Several years ago I learned about the power of authority while operating an asphalt business in Michigan. When I initially started the company, it was called something like “Barnes Asphalt Service” or something along those lines.
