The femme chic style of the small BBprint BRELLI is from our limited edition collection of designer umbrellas...perfect for one. The printBRELLI is the perfect umbrella for rain or shine! The print canopy provides 99% UVA/UVB/UVC protection.
In the rain, your printBRELLI will act as a shield protecting you from even the heaviest of downpours. It has been tested to withstand winds of 40 MPH without turning inside out or breaking. When light shines through the canopy onto your skin, you will get a warm glow cast by canopy. However, you are protected from UV rays that cause cancer and burning.
The Print BRELLI is made with a bamboo frame, organic cotton and a biodegradable plastic. It is 100% biodegradable in 3 - 5 years in either compost or landfill. In landfill, the bio gas released during the process of breaking down the BRELLI can be collected and used for an alternative, green energy.

The BRELLI is made to be very durable in wind, rain, and sun, yet it is lightweight and easy to carry with its own handy carrying case made of natural, organic cotton. The frame is made of bamboo, a renewable resource and a very strong material that gives the BRELLI it's strength. The canopy is made from our own eco-plastic that is soft, strong, and 100% biodegradable once it is disposed of in landfill or compost. This canopy offers superior protection from the elements and is a bright and brilliant evolutionary leap forward from the dark, damp nylon umbrellas. Unlike conventional umbrellas it withstands heavy downpours and high winds and because the canopy is plastic, it dries more quickly. It is the ultimate high-fashion accessory that is still green.
A lighter footprint - We designed and built the BRELLI so that even in landfill environments, a discarded BRELLI will completely biodegrade in less than five years.....this is only a tiny fraction of the time it takes for a conventional umbrella to biodegrade (estimates range from 40 -80 years for the canopy). We don't have any formal data on how long it takes conventional umbrellas with a metal frame to completely biodegrade because they take so many years. We worked diligently to create and use materials that, during their biodegration process, release only harmless gases. The gas released by each discarded BRELLI in a conditional landfill can be harvested to generate enough electricity to recoup more than 90% of the energy that was used to create it.
