It started on a rainy day in Seattle, watching person after person walk by with an ugly umbrella, a boring umbrella, a broken umbrella, or no umbrella at all. How did the umbrella fall so far that it was barely more stylish and functional than holding a newspaper over your head? So, we decided to change that by designing an umbrella that’s stylish and durable. An umbrella that helps you look great and stay dry. An umbrella you’ll actually be happy to carry as long as you like getting compliments.
We’ve since launched a series of other products meant to accessorize your life — pouches, leashes, mugs. And all follow our design approach of creating things that sit at the intersection of style and utility. No compromises. We get there by focusing on the details that matter: premium materials, high-quality craftsmanship, custom color combinations. Things that look great and work great. Fashionable and tough. Sleek and durable. That’s the new definition of luxury.
Got tired of having cheap umbrellas that fall apart after 3 uses, or get turned inside out in a strong breeze. This umbrella is built super solidly. The stylish color choices and attention to quality materials is a plus. Highly recommend!
This is a really well made umbrella. Solid construction, feels premium in the hand, and has an attractive appearance.
As soon as I removed the umbrella from the box I was immediately impressed. You can feel the quality. The cork handle fits perfect in my hand and I have never had an umbrella open so smooth and easy. The yellow fabric brings a smile to my face and is a bright spot on a dreary day. I never thought that I would own an umbrella that I looked forward to using.
Finally a company is taking the care to create a product with high-quality engineering and design and at a fabulous price. I bought one of myself but am planning on gifting several others. Bravo, this is a lovely umbrella!
Quality worth the cost
This umbrella is supposed to be a small travel umbrella, but it is too large and heavy in my mind. It's smaller than a large umbrella, though. It is very attractive and well made.
This umbrella is the best. First off, the colors are beautiful and it is nice to have such a modern, sheik style -in the past I would usually end up picking something cheesy because that was all there was to choose from. Not anymore :) The quality is top-notch and I would definitely recommend Certain Standard umbrellas to family and friend. Excited for fall rainy weather to sport my new accessory!
I never thought I could get this excited about an umbrella, but seriously— I LOVE it! I have only had it a few days, but every time I have used it I have gotten a ton of compliments. It’s a nice pop of color (I got teal), has a super comfy handle and the accent makes it uniquely different. The corners are also rounded so you don’t have to worry about awkwardly poking people you walk by, which is really important if you’re me! It feels like an all season umbrella— something that would work well both in rain and sun. Definitely recommend!
I have not used this umbrella in the rain yet, but I love the colors and it seems very well made. Happy with my purchase.
