The limited edition Blunt x Blacklist umbrella has the signature abstract hand-lettering style of Nathan Johnson, the creative behind Sydney-based studio Blacklist. Best known for his one-of-a-kind art pieces, Nathan draws great inspiration from love, which takes centre stage within the lettering of his latest monochromatic masterpiece. Referencing themes of the ocean and summertime, this dreamlike narrative creates a joyful juxtaposition to Nathan s classically dark colour palette.

The original full-length Blunt Classic umbrella is ideal for those who need impromptu protection in a serious downpour – whether en route to work, school or walking the dog.

Open Diameter: 120cm

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 He also noticed how umbrellas had become a throwaway commodity, mainly due to poor-quality materials and flimsy, outdated design.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.

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.
