After 4000 years has reached a new umbrella: POPI!
This umbrella solves all problems related to folding umbrellas improve comfort and portability. The handle also functions as a container that allows to close the umbrella in it, this results in two advantages: the handle is larger and more comfortable and
the umbrella can be stored anywhere, even when wet. Popi is the size of a standard umbrella and on the production side has only a small fee for the production of "neck-body". Operation is simple: just pull the top cap and pull out the umbrella like a common umbrella folding to close again just do the opposite. The idea is two years old, making it public I hope to find a company willing to produce it.
