While living in London and dealing with rainy commutes, Kiwi engineer Greig Brebner noticed how unsafe umbrellas were - being so tall, the spikes often poked him in the eye. He also noticed how umbrellas had become a throwaway commodity, mainly due to poor-quality materials and flimsy, outdated design. So he set about redesigning the umbrella as we all know it. BLUNT's unique patented and trademarked shape, formed by the technology within, is the only umbrella on the market with a fully tensioned canopy for unparalleled performance. A BLUNT umbrella is the last umbrella you will ever need to buy.
