Introduction to Wood Umbrellas
Did you know that umbrellas have been around since ancient civilization? These have been historically documented to have existed in Ancient China, Rome, Greece, India, and Europe. All throughout history, these were handheld; technological advancement had not emerged yet, so shade was created manually. Today, outdoor umbrellas or parasols can literally provide shade to dozens of people depending on the type and size of the umbrella. Since many of the establishments and homes today follow a futuristic or contemporary plan, some of the outdoor umbrellas being sold now offer equally modern designs. However, wood umbrellas, more popularly known as market umbrellas, still manage to find their way to traditional spaces. They are even prefered over more highly durable materials like plastic or aluminum by many because they resemble an authentic design that was present from the very beginning.
