EAST LONDON PARASOL COMPANY | FIND US IN THE WIGGLY SHED
East London Parasol Company blends traditional techniques from India and Bali with contemporary design to produce something truly unique.
East London Parasol Company was founded in 2015. Whilst living in Kerala, southern India, founder Lucy saw decorative parasols used in religious celebrations. Inspired by the riotous colours she bought her own to celebrate under, little knowing this would lead to a business. The silver fringes and top pieces are made in Kerala by the temple umbrella makers and have been flown to Bali and become part of their traditional parasols. The Kerala temple umbrella fringing also travels to Jaipur where a community of Rajasthani women have learned how to work with it. The canopies are made from taffetas, hand block prints and antique Rajasthani textiles.
