New Zealand artist Flox’s trademark birds and botanicals are a celebration of the natural world. Using stencil and spray paint to produce her bold and expressive depictions, the Flox brand quickly became synonymous with an aesthetic recognisable by most today. Created as part of the Neo Tropica 2023 collection, the limited edition Blunt x Flox umbrella is reminiscent of a luscious rainforest canopy. Two fruit doves nestle themselves amongst a refreshing palette of tropical flora and rich greenery.
With 100cm coverage, the Metro umbrella is perfectly sized to give you coverage while not taking up too much street space. The Metro features an auto-open canopy to easily open with the push of a button and collapses back down to slide neatly into the carry sleeve. It’s also built with a 360 degree spinning canopy to avoid damaging the core mechanism when knocked on an accident.
The Flox design is also available in the full length Classic umbrella.
Compact, collapsible and convenient, the Blunt Metro umbrella is always at hand while you are on the go. Designed for those who love life in the fast lane, live lightly and refuse to be held back by the elements.
Open Diameter: 100cm
Closed Length: 37.5cm

Cleaning and drying your Blunt umbrella:
When cleaning your canopy, use a clean cloth and some warm water to clear any marks. Make sure you keep away from any chemical detergents and bristle brushes as these can damage the material. Blunt canopies are not machine washable.
Make sure you dry out your umbrella completely to avoid any mildew or water stains forming. The best way to dry your umbrella is to leave it fully open. But if space is limited (or you're a little superstitious), your Blunt can be dried by standing it with the handle up and the canopy tie released.

While living in London and dealing with rainy commutes, Kiwi engineer Greig Brebner noticed how unsafe umbrellas were - being so tall, the spikes often poked him in the eye. He also noticed how umbrellas had become a throwaway commodity, mainly due to poor-quality materials and flimsy, outdated design.
So to save his eyes and reduce the number of broken umbrellas that end up as landfill each year, Greig set out to do something no one had done since 1928 - to re-invent the umbrella. And he began by re-designing the mechanisms.
Going right back to the drawing board, Greig married engineering innovation with no-fuss design styling to create something that exceeded even his own expectations: a ridiculously strong umbrella that could handle seriously wild weather.
After pushing countless prototypes to the limits in wind tunnels and on the blustery hills of Auckland, Greig finally did it. He'd re-invented the umbrella. And it just so happened to become the best umbrella in the world.
