Always in Style

Our branded line Chiang Mai Classic Umbrellas is the traditional flagship of our hand-held umbrella production. It is based on the traditional Thai oiled umbrella which is used in many areas of Thailand in everyday life. These are affordable, natural and environmentally responsible umbrellas. The Chiang Mai Classic Umbrella is made with a combination of traditional and modern materials. Similar to its strong bamboo frame, the canopy is handmade, resulting in highly water-resistant oiled cotton material.

Environmentally Responsible Bamboo Umbrella
The umbrella frame is made with selected, durable bamboo, shaped and assembled by our highly skilled master crafters. Our bamboo is locally abundant, grows quickly and is our material of choice for environmentally sustainable manufacture.

Our Chiang Mai Classic Umbrellas are manufactured at our workshop in Doi Saket, Chiang Mai province.

Sunisa Umbrella Workshop is a 5 minute motor scooter ride from Bo Sang Umbrella Village, where many of our umbrellas are sold in local tourist shops. Our Chiang Mai Classic Umbrellas brand relates to the categories of Oiled Umbrellas, Bamboo Umbrellas, Thai Umbrellas  and Japanese Umbrellas. They have a similar look and feel as Oil Paper Umbrellas and the oiled version of Chinese Paper Umbrellas, while our umbrellas may be considered more durable than the oil paper umbrella version.

What are Oiled Umbrellas and Oil Paper Umbrellas?
While they have a similar look and feel as oil paper umbrellas which are more prevalent in China, our oiled umbrellas do not contain paper. Our canopy's base material is cotton, processed with a recipe of natural and oil-based materials. Our umbrella is therefore also known as waterproofed cotton bamboo umbrella. This traditional waterproofing method gives the canopy a firm, yet flexible, parchment-like texture, similar to that of oil paper umbrellas.

Our Chiang Mai Classic Umbrella is a highly water-resistant oiled umbrella providing excellent rain and sun protection.

For the standard paper umbrellas that are not water-resistant, please see our product line of Paper Umbrellas.
