Il Marchesato – Handmade in Italy for Schirm Oertel Our handmade umbrellas are made with the purpose of turning a simple functional object of every day life into an object of beauty. Something that goes beyond the mere protection from rain. That is why we have focused on making things better. Not only by using the best components, but also taking great care in the selection of fabrics - all of which are manufactured in Italy. We use fiberglass ribs for most of our umbrellas, and they are also fitted with scotch-guard, double-resin coating fabrics that make them suitable for the most rainy climates. One of the best features of „Il Marchesato“ umbrellas however is the constant search for an elegant style. The coupling of colours, patterns and materials bring forth a unique style. Our luxury umbrellas are equipped with handles, tubes and accessories which have all been gilded (24k) in galvanic baths. Those who love beauty in umbrellas appreciate our design and the quality of our materials, together with the high manufacturing standards. For some of our umbrellas we use the very exclusive material „Real Silk“. Ultimate luxury at a reasonable price! You may easily guess that behind every „Il Marchesato“ handmade umbrella there is the love and passion of the person who created it.
