Why our customers love it

Inspired by our popular Duchess parasol, the Cosmopolitan Collection is effortlessly elegant with the added benefit of two options in handle-length.  

The short handle style is suitable for ladies under 160 cm and is also popular for little girls. The long handle style is more comfortable for women over 160cm.

They are classic white in colour, to complement all outfits, with a trim on the edge of the parasol and wind vent.

Perfectly sized, just for you: The short parasol has a folded length of 58cm or 23 inches, so it will fit inside luggage making it ideal for travellers. The long parasol is 78cm (31 inches), making it more comfortable for taller ladies to hold.

Elegant: The canopy is made from a cotton blend fabric, to differentiate its appearance from a rain umbrella and evoke a Summery vibe.

Carry Bag: Includes a matching carry bag with strap, to protect the sun umbrella and making it easy to carry when not in use.

Comfortable: Teardrop shared wooden handle, for a comfortable grip.

UPF50+ rating: Enhanced with a sun blocker to provide UPF50+ protection, which will keep you cooler and protect your skin, without giving you hat-hair. The sun blocker also causes water to bead off the canopy, so your parasol will protect you if you get caught in the rain.

Wind resistant: Wind vent built into the canopy, to allow any breeze to dissipate ensuring that your sun umbrella will not invert. 

Stunning and unique straight canopy, which allow the breeze to pass straight across rather than get caught in the curve of a rain umbrella.

Durable: Quality mechanism and fibreglass ribs, for a durable and long lasting sun umbrella.

Perfect coverage: The open canopy diameter (80cm or 31.5 inches) is the perfect size for a sun umbrella. It can be angled to maximise your shade to protect your upper body, whilst being unobtrusive in a crowd.

Lightweight: Weighs just 250 grams, making it comfortable to hold for any length of time.​

    Lovely product!

    I bought the small size, which is perfect for me (I’m about 160cm). It’s light and the handle feels comfortable in my hand. It folds away easily too. Will get one for my mum who was very impressed with it.

    The parasol is excellent but

    The parasol is excellent but we needed to alter the case a bit.

    Beautiful solution!

    This umbrella is perfect. Hats don’t cover shoulders and arms, and I love being able to walk knowing I’m protected. It’s cooler too. Couldn’t ask for me. It’s strong, mechanism is sturdy and of course it LOOKS gorgeous ☺️!

    Amazing gift idea

    I have one myself and love it. I get tons of comments on my du parasol both in Australia and abroad. The 2 additional purchases are for gifts. I know they will be just the right thing; useful, elegant and stylish.

    Great product, handle too long!

    I bought this as I thought it would "fit" but in fact at 5'5" the handle is too long and it's hard to carry. So I have gifted it and now bought a folding one, way better for me! I love having no hat hair and the extent of the shade that I get. I also love being able to pop it in my bag so if we're going out I'm not carrying along stick all the time!

    Elegance in the sun

    A Christmas gift for a friend, who loves her new parasol. Elegant, practical, compact. Great design, colour and gives elegant protection from the sun.

    A brilliant staple

    The sunbrella is an elegant and practical solution for me when going from work meeting to meeting and running around a hat isn’t always practical as you ended up trying to accomodate taking it on and off

    Awesome Umbrella!

    This umbrella is great! It looks nice especially compared to other sun umbrella that look more like rain umbrellas. I have got lots of compliments when I use it. It is lite and the quality is very good. Definitely would recommend sunbella.

    I bought my first Sunbella parasol when I was visiting friends in Broome. I do a lot of volunteer work, going from door to door teaching people about the Bible. I wanted a good parasol to protect me from the sun while doing this. From the first use I was in love. It was fantastic! Lightweight, compact and extreamly elegant. My friends also loved it and each bought one by the time I left. I must confess that I didn't know a lot about the Sunbella brand until I had to buy a second parasol. Would you believe that my Mum also fell in love with my parasol, so I gave her mine and ventured online to buy another. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they were WA made! Now my Mum, my sister-in-law, my friends and myself all own a Sunbella Parasol. They're great for walking about in the sun without having to worry about bothersome hats or the dreaded 'hat hair.' I urge everyone to buy one of these parasols. The staff are friendly, efficient and accommodating. Congratulations on a fantastic product. I reccommend these to everyone :)
