History of the Shepherd's Umbrella
Traditionally rustic, the shepherd's umbrella is no less urban. The real blue shepherd is a product made by craftsmen (more than 4 hours are required to make this model) in France. Guarantee of an authentic product made in France; of high quality.
In the past, the umbrella fabric was made of heavy cotton and had to pass once or twice in the rain to become totally waterproof. Only then was the umbrella ready to face the changing weather of the Pyrenees combining rain, sun, wind, thunder...
This umbrella comes from the Pyrenees and is steeped in the history of our shepherds. Berger's umbrella was born in the Pyrenees in the 17th century.
Indeed, at that time, it was used by many shepherds. Its quality of manufacture as well as the materials used allowed the shepherds to use it all their lives to protect themselves not only from the rain but also from the sun. This umbrella through the manufacture and materials used has not changed for several centuries. This tradition is therefore perpetuated in the pure tradition of French craftsmanship. In addition, its large size compared to the classic umbrella, will allow you to stay safe with family or friends easily.
