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.

I’m 5.2 and I find this handle far too short. I will allow my child to use it when she is a little older and more responsible, as it is very pretty and white. It’s a classic stylish design and I just wish I had chosen the longer handle rather than the websites advice. Also the carrier would benefit from being patterned, or of a thicker fabric so you don’t have to worry about where you place it down. The umbrella is brilliantly white which is its selling feature so having the carrier white means you have to be careful where you place it. It’s currently the best on the market in my opinion but it’s not cheap so the small details matter.
Hi Jess, Thanks for your feedback, sorry I'm only just seeing this now! In future, we would always be happy to swap products if you aren't happy with the one that you have purchased. If this one is still in it's original packaging please drop me a note and we can take it from there. I do know what you mean - there is definitely an element of personal preference in the length of the handle, because depending on where you hold it / rest it on your shoulder affects the balance of the whole parasol. The guidelines have been based on our feedback from customers at markets, but it's a tricky thing to provide advice for online. Please let me know if I can assist with a product swap. Warmest, Casey
Exactly what I was looking for for elderly relatives at a wedding, who won’t wear hats to mess their hair and like looking a bit stylish
Effective, comfortable and convenient. Beautifully designed, so fresh and elegant, a work of art. Thank you Sunbella, l am so fortunate to have found you. I have long wished for a product like this. I now have 3 of your different parasols ... truly life changing Much gratitude, Shelley. Victoria
