Sale with the professionals

Since 1920, this company has been making medium and high-end umbrellas and parasols. It works under licence for leading labels (Jean-Paul Gaultier and Chantal Thomass), and also develops its own models sold under the Guy de Jean brand, not to mention tailor-made umbrellas. .

It is one of the two producers that are best known for their top-of-the-line productions, among the last umbrella makers left in France (barely a half a dozen). It stands out in the profession by the complexity and creativity of its models and the very high quality of its finishings

Nearly half of its sales come from exports.
