I set up Boo Brolly in 2019 with the hope of bringing new umbrella innovations (like colour changing canopies) and bright, positive and beautiful designs to one and all!
If there is anything that this stormy wet rainy weather is showing us is that we all need an umbrella! Boo Brolly is bringing quirky and colourful brollies to all those who need something to brighten up those dreary days.
I live here in the most-special town of Penarth in South Wales and run Boo Brolly myself from our home office, with distant but uplifting views of Flat Holm and the sea. I design my umbrella collection with the aim of brightening up those wet dull days with fun cheery umbrellas.
Currently I am working on growing our collection of umbrellas. We only have one design at the moment – well you have to start somewhere!
The next project is a collection of 3 children’s colour-changing umbrellas which are oh-so-sweet. Also a light-up festival umbrella is in the pipeline, as well as other bright and zingy colour-changing designs to grow the catalogue.
I have many years of experience in the field of umbrellas as my husband, Dan, and I run a B2B business called Brollies & Parasols. After having my daughter, I decided not to return to the Marketing department that I relished running and instead focus on the business with the aim to grow and strengthen. Brollies & Parasols design, produce and manufacture high-end umbrellas and parasols (did the name give it away?!) for breweries, restaurants, hotels, marketing companies, festivals etc etc. Clients include The Dorchester, Queens Club, Jamie Oliver restaurants, 45 Park Lane, Osborne & Little, Dorset Cereals, Martini, LTA, Heineken, Johnnie Walker, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Fever Tree and Waldorf Astoria hotels to name a few.
From Me to You
Utilising the experience I have with high-end umbrellas, I wanted to do something different with a more local, personal focus. The heart of Boo Brolly is to produce more creative and design-focused beautiful brollies. And that is exactly what I hope I do!
