Bambrella has been producing the industry’s highest-quality bamboo umbrellas since 1996. Today, Bambrella employs unique, patented designs and innovative technology to manufacture thoughtfully designed, durable, and long-lasting bamboo and aluminum patio umbrellas. All Bambrella bamboo umbrellas have been wind-tunnel-tested up to 90km/h (gale force), and all aluminum umbrellas have been tested up to speeds of 121km/h (hurricane force).
After years of research and rigorous testing, Bambrella discovered that Moso bamboo was the only species suitable for outdoor use. Unlike other bamboo species, Moso bamboo features smaller and more tightly condensed fiber strands, similar to those found in fine-grained hardwoods like teak. This high-quality bamboo is resistant to mold and mildew and is the only bamboo that can be processed and treated for outdoor use.
Bambrella’s patented joint system enables production to hot press and glue long lengths of laminations, resulting in incomparable quality. What’s more, independent laboratory testing has been conducted for mold and mildew defense and de-lamination prevention, ensuring that Bambrella products will last outdoors for years to come.
Not only are Bambrella’s bamboo umbrellas beautiful and extremely robust, but they’re also environmentally conscious. Bambrella® is a certificate holder in the Forest Stewardship Council
(FSC®) scheme, and they work to source bamboo through FSC® certified forests. Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on earth, and it’s sustainable, renewable, non-toxic, and non-hazardous to the environment. It’s also naturally strong, offering superior density, strength, and hardness compared to most hardwoods.
All the materials used in the production of Bambrella umbrellas are 100% recyclable. Bambrella also prioritizes the use of environmentally conscious materials and methods in the production and packaging of its products.
