Francesco Maglia Navy Blue and Red Umbrella.
Francesco Maglia Fit-Up Umbrella with Natural Chestnut Handle.
In 1850 Francesco Maglia began his career as an umbrella apprentice in an umbrella factory in Montechiari, in the province of Brescia. In 1854 Francesco Maglia entered as partner in a small umbrella factory in Verolanuova and later moved to Pavia where he started up his own business. Few umbrellas' manufacturers are left in Europe and even fewer craft their masterpieces completely by hand in more than 70 steps of manufacturing. Francesco Maglia and his fifth-generation company based in Milano is one of these and has been creating some of the finest handmade umbrellas in the world.
The Fit-Up umbrella consists of two main parts, the shaft and the handle. Similar in terms of resistance to a solid stick model, this Fit-Up umbrella allows customers to combine the elegance of fire-hardened wood and chrome-plated brass, with the refinement of the natural feel of the chestnut handle.
We are delighted to offer you our selection of umbrellas which have been carefully curated to complement our Fox Brothers Cloth.
