Tectona parasols are made in the traditional manner and have become legends! Our parasols are made in the workshops of an Italian family whose expertise and craftsmanship span four generations. The canvases are waterproofed and handsewn; ribs are carefully handfinished; the mast is in pine. A wrought iron support and a vent in the canopy ensure great wind resistance. Hardwood runners ensure the solidity of the structure. A water-soluble varnish is applied manually with a brush. The struts are also handcrafted and reinforced at both ends. The ecru canvas is made from waterproofed cotton. To clean it, use a gentle brush then spray uniformly with water. Do not use detergents as they would reduce the waterproofness
The coloured canvases of Roma parasols are available in 12 colours in Sunbrella, a textile highly resistant to the elements and that keeps its colour. Sunbird and Colibri parasols and the Butterfly tent have an acrylic canvas. The Florida parasol has a canvas in Textilene, which is cared for in the same way as Batyline.
