About

 

The BRELLI is the perfect luxury eco-friendly umbrella.  The BRELLI's transparent canopy provides superior protection from the sun (it provides 99% UVA/UVB/UVC protection), rain and can withstand winds up to 40 mph.  Beautiful and functional, the BRELLI is a brilliant evolutionary leap forward from the conventional umbrella. It is the ultimate luxury high fashion accessory with responsibility.

A Lighter Footprint

We designed the BRELLI to biodegrade in aerobic and anaerobic landfill environments.  A discarded BRELLI will completely biodegrade in less than five years.  In an aerobic landfill it will biodegrade as twigs and leaves do.  In an anaerobic landfill it will biodegrade into biogas; this collected biogas is, more often than not, recycled into energy to sustain the landfill.  The energy produced from the harvested biogas will recoup more than 90% of the energy used to create the BRELLI.

MANUFACTURING

The BRELLIs are handmade in Thailand. They are hand carved using expert craftsman techniques, therefore each part of the BRELLI is unique making each one-of-a-kind. The BRELLI canopy is made with BRELLIX film (developed expressly for BRELLI), made in the USA. The BRELLImarkers (made to doodle your own artwork on the BRELLIX canopy) are developed exclusively for BRELLI, and made in the USA.
