Our focus is on people. Therefore, the Lou-i are made by hand, with great attention to detail and the highest quality in their own manufactory (Friedberg / BY).
Info wooden sign turn:
Although the umbrellas are made of real wood, by heating (eg with the help of an iron) deformations are possible and you can bend them individually.
The real wood sign is not only flexible, but also robust and durable. The special construction (3-ply) minimizes typical wooden properties such as waviness and moisture distortion (successfully tested in rain and snow). The wood is selected according to responsible criteria.
Each type of wood has its characteristic features. Each wood grain tells an interesting story. Just as no fingerprint is the same all over the world, so no wooden umbrella is like the other. That's why every Lou-i is a real one-off. Mahogany is a deciduous tree native to Central and South America. The evergreen trees can grow on average over 40m and the straight, knotless tree trunk can reach a diameter of up to 3.5m. American mahogany has been in demand for more than 450 years, initially as an ideal starting material for shipbuilding. Today, this wood is used particularly in the art and furniture joinery due to the excellent processing properties and weather resistance.
Linen has been known since ancient times and is, therefore, the oldest textile fiber in the world: the earliest finds date back to 8000 BC. It is as fine as the cotton fiber, but much more tear-resistant. The linen processed today comes mostly from Europe and China. Linen is hygienic, water binding neutralizes odors and has a cooling effect (breathable).
