Francesco Maglia umbrellas are assembled onto natural wooden shafts. Woodworking, faithful to 19th century techniques, includes phases such as bending and grinding. These phases are done manually along with wood waxing; for this reason every shaft is unique and one of a kind.
Each umbrella tip is made of turned brass or natural horn or antler.
The company offers different sizes for its production; starting from standard European market umbrellas with canopy diameters ranging from 104 to 112 cm up to “doorman” sizes with diameters of 132 cm. A wide selection of woods are available: starting with a “rustic” shaft such as chestnut, hazel or ash, and then moving on to more classic elegant types such as bamboo, maple or rattan shafts, concluding with original deer, oryx, ram, and warthog antlers and horns.
The Fit-Up umbrella consists of two main parts: the shaft and the handle. Similar in terms of resistance to the whole shaft; the Fit-Up version allows customers to combine the elegance of fire-hardened wood and chrome-plated brass with the refinement of a handle in leather or the natural feel of wood. Also entirely handmade, this umbrella plays with the imagination of a customer who can develop a product that best suits him or her in style and size. The company offers various sizes; starting from standard European market umbrellas with canopy diameters ranging from 104 to 112 cm up to “doorman” sizes with diameters of 132 cm.
By proposing this exceptionally sturdy umbrella with anti-wind ribs, the Maglia family has chosen to meet the needs of a public seeking greater modernity.
Customers can combine handles in sporty hand-stitched leather or classic ones in chestnut, hazel and rattan wood with resistant steel shafts. The umbrella is available in a standard size for men with a XX cm diameter and the doorman size with a 132 cm diameter.
