ARE THEY WATERPROOF?
We put so much care into crafting our parasols, and they require a little extra care from you so that you can enjoy them for years to come!
They are intended primarily as sun shades, they are resistant to an occassional shower and normal wind conditions. Just make sure they’re fully dried off before you put them away. Treat them as you would with your outdoor cushions.
Scotchguard is wonderful stuff, we highly recommend it.
MY PARASOL IS DIFFICULT TO OPEN
The parasols tend to be a little extra stiff initially, but not to worry, they will become more pliable after the first few uses. We recommend opening the top part upside down, carefully pushing towards the ground until it opens fully. Then you can flip it and insert it into the bottom pole, securing the two pieces with the peg.
