Oertel Handmade - Hickory
natural hickory, beautifully structured
excl. Shipping Cost
A classic handmade gentlemen’s umbrella with a continuous hickory stick (meaning shaft and handle are made of one natural piece of wood). Since we did not colour-stain the handle, the beautiful structure of the wood is perfectly visible. The canopy is made of a high-quality deep black polyester twill fabric. All technical details normally visible are sewn with fabric making them invisible. No plastic parts are used for this umbrella. It comes with a case made of the same material as the canopy for protection if, for example, the umbrella is used as a walking stick. The umbrella comes with two closing bands, each has a mother-of-peal button. We also include a black cloth carrying bag to protect the entire umbrella, including canopy and handle.

For our "Oertel Handmade" umbrellas we order the most exclusive handles made of precious woods, a variety of natural cane materials, as well as nickel-wood combinations, sterling silver, hand-sewn buffalo leather, and mother-of-pearl. We have these umbrellas covered with the most select fabrics from Great Britain (such as original tartans) and Italy. Fabric from the latter country is mainly made in Como on looms used for producing the finest ties. We place great value on using only the best possible frames (e.g., the unbreakable frame made of tempered spring steel), as well as our own 10-piece frames on a steel shaft with 67 cm ribs. All materials, except the handle and canopy, are made of steel, with no plastic parts used at all. These umbrellas are individually handcrafted. Once, the overall combination of materials meets our quality standards does it receive the "Oertel Bremen" band on the handle. This product is extremely strong and robust - made for the worst English weather!
