On our last trip to Las Vegas, our buyers were looking for new quality goods missing from our store. One of the hardest items to find a good, long lasting umbrella. The cheaper versions break and collapse easily from heavy winds or even light use. We were searching for a brand that withstood the test of time at good value to our consumer. And preferably from our home in Canada, since parts of our country experience serious rainfalls.
After great searching, we stumbled upon Westerly Goods, a Vancouver-based brand launched in 2014 with the purpose of bringing new life to the world of umbrellas. Their take on a classic looking yet more functional accessory includes fiberglass ribs and frame, which is reinforced and flexible enough to absorb any rain or wind impact. Westerly Goods has also added cool details like etched wooden handles, embossed brass closures and new canopy prints to improve the look of their umbrellas. The result is a stylish product that stands the test of time.
Over the Rainbow is proud to be the newest retailers of Westerly Goods umbrellas in a variety of styles, from the easy-to-go packable Drifter to the long handle Scout for a more substantial weather choice. Westerly Goods is available in a number of classic and novelty prints in our Toronto flagship and online store for Spring/Summer 2016.
