I remember the poem my grandmother wrote and here’s some of it’s wordings, “I hope you can be my umbrella, someone who can shield me from tears and pain”. When I received this pretty umbrella, I remember the time I have with my grand mother. She’s my shield from all the pain and she was there during happiness and sadness.
As time goes by, the things around us also evolves from it’s humble beginning to a worldwide known innovation. Knirps is one great example of how an invention can move people. Honestly, i have never known that they are the one who invented the folding umbrella. Knirps from Germany set the world standard for pocket umbrella with their wide selection and different styles.

The word Knirps actually means “little one” in German, and ever since the company invented the folding umbrella in 1928, it has set the worldwide standard for designing umbrellas that are not only “little,” but fashionable and durable as well.
Ultra light and pocket friendly those are just the two things I always look for my umbrella. Something that is compact yet sturdy and can handle even a windy day but also would not compromise it’s style.
Since 1928, Knirps boasts and pride a legacy of precision German engineering. Here are some signature qualities of Knirps umbrella that you ought to know:
