How to furl your Fox umbrella

The best way to keep your Fox umbrella looking sharp is to roll it neatly when not in use.

After use, leave the umbrella open to dry. Once the umbrella is completely dry it should be furled carefully, it is simple, just follow these steps:

  1. Hold the umbrella by the handle and tips with your right hand.
  2. Gore by gore, gently pull out any fabric that has been caught in the ribs when closing the umbrella down. Hold each gore in position with your right hand as you go.
  3. Lightly move your hand from the top of the umbrella in a circular motion, smoothing the fabric without twisting the ribs over each other and making sure that the folds are in the correct position on the iron lines.
  4. Once you are happy with the folds the band can be fastened.

    When storing your umbrella away, remember to avoid direct sunlight as the exposed fabric can fade over time. It is also important to avoid keeping your umbrella in places such as porches, cars and on radiators as the changes in temperature and humidity can damage the handle.
