I was commissioned to create parasols for the beautiful new cafe at West Lexham retreat centre in Norfolk. Their ethos is of peace, creativity and beauty and it reminded me of the aesthetics of the Arts and Crafts movement. I took inspiration from the whirls on a William de Morgan painted tile to create this organic pattern which looks like the curled heads of new fern fronds.
I chose teal to complement and contrast with the warm red, orange tones of the Norfolk clay tiled buildings, and the lusciously verdant foliage. The painterly blue green colouring of this parasol looks incredible in a garden setting, on a terrace or over a table for alfresco dining. The tones and style of the pattern are easy to match with cushions and napkins, both cool and warm colours will work beautifully.
This lovely teal parasol has an Arabian inspired valance and teal coloured tassels. The inside is also printed with the stunning design.
The pattern is screen printed onto water resistant canvas, and the frame is made by local carpenters in Hampshire using FSC certified ash wood with our own designs of brass fittings and double pulley system to make the opening easy.
This is a very special parasol, each part specifically made for East London Parasol Co. These are handmade items and there may be some variation in colour.
Please read the ‘how to care for your parasol page’ as this parasol shouldn’t get too wet.
For every parasol sold, we plant a tree.

UK Mainland postage and packaging is at a standard rate with reputable couriers. Shipping for parasols and bases is sadly a higher price as couriers calculate cost according to whether size or weight is larger. We make no money on shipping and wish it was cheaper.
International shipping is with various carriers. Purchases will arrive boxed and well wrapped. Please retain packaging as we cannot accept returns or compensate for lost/ damaged orders without it.
