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 fabrics of the Roma parasols are available in 12 colours in Sunbrella: this fabric is very weather-resistant and does not fade. The Sunbird, Colibri and Butterfly models have an acrylic fabric. The Florida model uses a Textilene fabric, which can be maintained like Batyline.
