CORK UMBRELLA


CORK ISN'T JUST FOR BULLETIN BOARDS AND WINE BOTTLE. MADE FROM CORK, NOT ONLY IS IT NATURALLY WATER RESISTANT, BUT IT'S ALSO ECO FRIENDLY. THIS WAS DESIGNED BY SANDRA CORREIA, A NATIVE OF PORTUGAL. FACTOID: 50% OF THE WORLDS CORK PRODUCTION COMES FROM PORTUGAL WHICH MEANS THAT IS A PRETTY BIG DEAL FOR THEIR ECONOMY. HOWEVER, THE PRICE TAG ON THIS UMBRELLA IS A BIT STEEP..$165! IT'S BEING SOLD NOW AT THE MOMA, BUT IF YOU ARE A MEMBER THAN THE PRICE IS ONLY $145. VIA LIKE COOL

Oh my goodness... I want this! Unless it's heavy, then it's a no-go.

However, I am totally scared of Umbrellas with large metal tips. I am not interested in attracting lightening. They should cover the tip with some natural rubber. :)
