This year, Knirps – the original from Germany – celebrates its 90th birthday accordingly: Knirps made itself an anniversary present and designed an umbrella which combines its entire design and production know-how of the past 90 years.  Since Knirps, one of the world’s leading umbrella brands, invented the first foldable pocket umbrella in 1928, the German traditional brand has stood for being Germany’s best-known umbrella and for constant umbrella innovations. A Knirps can be repaired and represents a sustainable quality product; features that distinguish it from many cheaper products. Bernhard Lindner, head of international sales and marketing, says: “Furthermore, we put emphasis on trendy designs and on producing ever lighter products without compromising stability.”
