Umbrella repair

Post by Claudia Aliffe »

Does anyone out there know of anyone or any company that will repair vintage umbrellas / parasols. I have a few which are lovely but need new spokes!

I am based in the UK but don't particuarly mind sending them overseas to have sorted.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Claudia

Hi Claudia I've moved this to the costume area where someone who knows an answer (like Frances) will see your question :)

There is a company at the end of New Oxford Street/Shaftesbury Avenue in London.
