These parasols are glamorous and gorgeous divas and are intended primarily as sun shades so please don’t get them too wet. A few splodges are fine, just make sure they’re fully dried off before you put them away. Treat them as you would your cushions.
Some of our parasols are made using canvas and will be more water resistant, however we still suggest you bring them in when it rains as the weight of a wet cover will strain the frame. Please under no circumstances use any of the parasols in windy weather conditions. A fall will damage them.
In the unlikely event that the fabric develops a hole or a tassel becomes displaced this is easily mended with needle and thread.
Store your parasol in its bag as upright as possible to avoid the tassels tangling, and away from radiators.
Any stains on the brass sleeve can be removed with brass polish and a soft cloth.
Your parasol is handcrafted, with a beautiful cover and frame made from sustainable ash wood. For the longest life for your parasol we recommend that you use linseed oil on the wood once a year to recondition it.
East London Parasols cannot offer a full refund or replacement where care instructions have not been followed.
