Bamboo Parasols - Manufacturer Information

Parasol Paradise™ is the European portal for bamboo parasols and bamboo umbrellas made in traditional, small-scale artisanal manufacturing in the Golden Triangle of Northern Thailand.

These parasols are produced in our dedicated Parasol Paradise workshop. Our bamboo parasols and umbrellas are handmade with renewable materials in environmentally and socially friendly working conditions.

Product showroom

Thai bamboo parasols, vermilion red and lemon yellow, 250 cm, in a lush garden with the owner

The overviews on our website show the three main models of our standard production: Thai, Fabric and Paper bamboo parasols. In addition, we customize per buyer request.

On order

We produce to order. We do produce on continuous basis, with an extensive stock of components to produce various orders directly and quickly. This helps us to produce efficiently with low costs. We do maintain a limited stock for incidental consumer purchases.

No shopping cart

Contact us for your question or your purchase, We do not maintain an automated shopping cart (it cannot cope with the quick changes in shipping). This also helps us to know our clients better.

Market-oriented

Our bamboo hand umbrellas are affordable, solid and strong, with an attractive appearance. Bamboo garden and patio umbrellas do not have to cost a thousand euros. All models emanate the essential facets of Atmosphere, Protection, and Environmentalism.

SMEs

Our market generally consists of retailers, hotels, cafes, restaurants, event organizers, existing companies and start-ups. And the consumer, if our products are not available locally.

Wholesale with low MOQ

As a small manufacturer, we offer wholesale prices with low minimum order quantity.

Not on virtual mega markets

Parasol Paradise™ is not present on virtual marketplaces such as Amazino, AlibarberEx, Vetsie or other local virtual market places. We reserve this for our local sellers in Europe. We would like to refer consumers who knock on our door to our representations in Europe, as far as possible.

Protection

We make modern and traditional bamboo parasols and umbrellas for

  • sun protection
  • rain protection
  • UV protection (a/b/c)
  • public social distancing
  • promotion and decoration, with
  • renewable, biodegradable materials in
  • environmentally responsible manufacturing and use

Environmentally responsible

Bamboo grows very quickly and abundantly in our local tropical environment. We harvest only selected fully grown poles of specific species, and we do not harvest in the rainy season when new bamboo sprouts emerge from the ground.

Plastic free

Due to bamboo's fast growth and abundant presence, its use for the manufacture of our parasols and umbrellas is per definition environmentally responsible: our bamboo replenishes quickly, there is no depletion of raw materials, no pollution, the products are natural and they are easily biodegradable. This cannot be said of hardwood, steel, nylon and most plastic products.

No laminates

We do not use laminates. No industrial crushing, adhesive and high pressure processes take place. We have developed a sustainable process to protect bamboo from insects and fungus in a natural way.

Soft wood

Our parasols and umbrellas use some small wooden parts. These are the top, ferrule, runner and handle. These are made from local rural softwood. This fast-growing wood does not come from forests or rainforest.

Individual initiative

Given the current issues surrounding carbon dioxide, nitrogen, PFAS and disposed plastic, it is time for not only government policy, but also a personal approach to combat climate change and environmental pollution. Here, every single individual measure counts, no matter how big or small.

More bamboo

That is precisely why we make our bamboo products, and why we argue for a larger share of eco-friendly bamboo products in the parasol and umbrella market. Get rid of polluting plastic and unstable metal ribs for parasols and umbrellas that don't even survive a gust of wind.

Experience

Our workshop and our export sponsor JEDI International, Ltd. have more than 15 years of experience in the development, production and export of bamboo parasols and umbrellas for the English-speaking market, worldwide. In addition to our own items, we also produce for a number of high-quality brand names.

Socially friendly - fair trade

We follow the guidelines of the fair trade organization WFTO. We do not strive for a certificate; the administrative requirements are not realistic for an independent,  small-scale, artisan manufacturer.

Sales outlets

We are seeking to expand our representation at independent sales outlets in Europe, the UK and Australia.

  • When desired, we list your point of sale of our products on this website and social media.
  • We handle consumer requests if the requested products are not available locally.

Questions or wish to order?

Don't wait for the next heat wave, rainy week, summer or winter.
