Did you say an umbrella for ducks? Well anyone who has this duck umbrella really is a lucky duck. You might hear ducks quacking as you walk past when they realize you're a friend. It is hard to imagine a more cheerful look than yellow rainboots, a yellow slicker and a yellow duck umbrella. A duck umbrella is the boost you need when walking out the door on a rainy day. A folding duck umbrella fits the bill. (No pun intended.) It also fits inside purses or backpacks or glove compartments. Take duck umbrellas wherever you go and keep a couple stashed around. The natural wood handle is a pleasure to grip.
In America, a little rain can sometimes keep us inside. Think British. The Brits never let a little rain keep them from their tradition of getting fresh air. According to London based journalist Sarah Lyall in her book The Anglophiles, the British actually enjoy having a little something to grumble about! Lyall says many British people would go mad in a sunny California climate with not much rain. She points out that air conditioning is not so ubiquitous in England. And when you order a drink in England, it is not automatically filled with ice like it is here. The British are hot tea drinkers, not iced tea drinkers. What's a little rain when you can fold up your and come in and have a nice cuppa tea?
A duck umbrella can be a men's gift or a women's gift. It even makes a great kid's umbrella. Think of a duck umbrella as a fashion accessory. Match one to your slicker. We even have Burberry beige. A duck umbrella is also a decorative accent in the closet. The duck makes it so much fun. Donald Duck would agree. That's all folks!
See our other rain umbrellas and read more about the British attitude toward rain in The Anglophiles Sarah Lyall's charming memoir about living in Britain.
Lyall often writes interesting articles with lovely photos about British decorating for The New York Times. These articles feature interesting English people and illuminate the English style beautifully for those of us living stateside. We see duck umbrellas fitting beautifully into the entrance hall of any English cottage.
We take umbrellas for granted but the history of umbrellas is quite interesting. Apparently it was not until 1750 in England that umbrellas were carried routinely for rain. The first gentleman we know to do so was ridiculed for not calling a coach. Prior to that in the middle ages, British literature tells us that gentlemen relied on cloaks for the rain, if they were wealthy enough to have a cloak. Duck umbrellas were definitely a thing of the future.
