Lockwood Umbrellas

We have on Manolo on a couple of occasions written about various umbrella manufacturers such as Francesco Maglia, London Undercover Umbrellas and Fox when an umbrella is both a stylish accessory as well as a faithful friend when the weather turns.

Unfortunately, the weather tends to do this even in the summer and we would therefore once again highlight the umbrella as a good investment. Today’s text will be about a very interesting little newcomer in the form of Lockwood Umbrellas.

The company was founded as recently as last september by Edward Gucewicz and Moses Manley, two young men who at that time had worked 5 years at the venerable paraplymakaren James Smith & Sons in London.

The duo makes the umbrellas for care in East London where the this month also has a so-called pop-up shop in Shoreditch. After this, they look for a permanent premises in London. In addition to this they sell their umbrellas after ordering in their webshop.

The craft level is very high and they manufacture the umbrellas of a solid piece of wood. The customer can choose between 6 different types of wood in the form of hickory, chestnut, ash, Hazel, oak, or Maple. All wood comes from Europe, except hickoryn which is purchased from the United States. The customer can also choose a few different sizes depending on their length. Everything to get the right proportions and balance.

The cloth is from carefully selected water resistant cotton and is cut out by hand.The buttons are in the seashell or horn from Buffalo or venison.

A sign comes from a well-made umbrella made of solid wood, it’s screwy sound that occurs when it folds up. To fold up an umbrella from Lockwood implies just that lovely click-through and testifies to the solid craftsmanship.

According to kingsvilletrends, lockwood umbrellas is a company that represents the fact that we love here at Manolo, namely young people once again have taken pride in tackling a real craft. When we meet with the best skrädderierna, shoemakers, leather specialists etc. so many say the same thing. The last few years have been huge interest among young people who like to begin as apprentices of them. All of these people are very dedicated and humble before tackling a craftsmanship and the knowledge it can get by starting with the old venerable manufacturers with lots of years of accumulated knowledge. What we can hope is that this will continue and that these companies can experience good times with both new and hungry staff and a high demand from more aware and discerning customers.
