Parasols first appeared in ancient Egypt over 3 thousand years ago. Created to protect nobility and royalty from harshness of the sunrays whilst maintaining the social accepted paleness of their skins.

Around 11th Century BC, the Chinese are said to have first waterproofed their umbrellas using oiled or waxed paper allowing for the umbrella to protect the holder from the rain.

The introduction of the European umbrella saw the item considered a female accessory.  Jonas Hanway, a Persian traveller (1712-86) popularised the use among men by carrying one publicly in England for about 30 years. English gentleman often referred to their umbrellas as a ''Hanway''.

Captain James Cook,  in one of his voyages in the late 18th century, reported seeing some of the natives of the South Pacific Islands with umbrellas made of palm leaves. 

Literature instructed readers on several methods of using an umbrella as an improvised weapon against highway - 1835, the Baron Charles Rand de Berenger, in  his book “How to protect property”.  The Daily Mirror in January 1902 instructed women on how they could defend themselves from ruffians with an umbrella.

 

We find though this Alpaca Umbrella ideal for keeping the rain out!!
