FRANCESCO MAGLIA 1854
Few umbrellas' manufacturers are left in Europe and even fewer craft their masterpieces completely by hand in more than 70 steps of manufacturing. Francesco Maglia and his fifth-generation company based in Milano is one of these and has been creating some of the finest handmade umbrellas in the world since 1854.
Nowadays Francesco Maglia still manufactures hand-craft umbrellas using the best high-quality materials and artisanal methods. The designer realizes classic-style umbrellas in English Style, both in plain colors or patterned (such as pin-stripes, tartan or regimental stripes); at the same time, the company is constantly looking for new fabrics and patterns.
Finally, this brand's peculiarity is the creation of solid stick umbrellas with different size frames realized by using a variety of woods (such as chestnut, malacca, hazelnut, ash, cherrywood, maple and hickory).
