No, our stick umbrellas shouldn’t blow inside out. However, there is the exception of our collapsible Metro model which may flip inside out in certain winds but it has been designed so that if it does, it can be easily flipped back without damaging the structure!
Our iconic shape is all thanks to the patented technology of our Blunt™ tips. They open like miniature umbrellas within custom pockets at the canopy edge, performing multiple purposes to make the Blunt™ Umbrella what it is. To learn more about our design see here.
BLUNT Umbrellas are designed in NZ and manufactured near Xiamen in China. Given the expertise and skill needed to produce BLUNT Umbrellas (they are still hand stitched unlike ordinary umbrellas) we use the best experts to manufacture and produce our umbrellas.
We have been with our supply partners for over 12 years now and they have helped BLUNT to prosper in the face of many challenges' small businesses face. BLUNT would not be here today if it weren’t for them.
Yes, we do. This is our Metro Umbrella and can be found here. It's perfect for backpacks, satchels, laptop bags, shoppers and medium to larger handbags.

Sustainability isn’t just a buzz word here at BLUNT, it’s part of our fabric and it’s reflected through the way we design everything we do. Aside from designing umbrellas that last, they are built to be fully repairable, with the intention to repair them wherever we can and to avoid ending up in landfills. We also take sustainability measures when it comes to our packaging, sourcing fully recyclable carton boxes, that are strong and sturdy enough to be re-used. Greig, our founder, also designed the carton ends to have a second use, when they’re not being re-used for packaging, they can also be used as a handy phone holder.
