The R-Series Machined Aluminum Umbrellas by Instrmnt are true beauties. This series includes the Instrmnt R-54 and Instrmnt R-19, both of which are mostly made of machined aluminum. For a special touch, the series uses Japanese fabric for the umbrella canopy and hand-stitched leather grips. Instrmnt is known for its unique designs, and its R-Series umbrellas are no exception. So if you are tired of blending into a sea of plain umbrellas, these will sure help you stand out. On top of that, these waterproof umbrellas have bent aluminum handles, which are reminiscent of old-fashioned umbrellas. Don’t worry—their handles are hollow, so you won’t have to carry around a heavy accessory. Additionally, Instrmnt prides itself on the fact that all of its manufacturing occurs in the UK, primarily at its workshop in Glasgow. So you can have a hand in supporting artisans, and think of them when you stay dry.
