A big HELLO to all our customers and thank you for taking the time to view our website. We hope you like our new look and enjoy browsing our superb range of umbrellas!


The history of us....We have come from a long line of retailers and as such have been trading in the Northwest for 4 generations, that's over 100 years! From the years when our great Grandfather had a jewelry stall in the old, beautiful Victorian Market Hall, Bolton, when it was a rolled up cloth with only a few items for sale! We have come a long way since those simple days. For those who know the Market Hall, we were still trading there right up until early 2008. When the doors closed here for a final time we decided that the business needed to move with the times too and forced to make a decision, we took the bull by the horns and decided to branch out into the wonderful world of internet shopping full time!

This gave us the opportunity to take what we believe to be a really fantastic range of umbrellas for everyone, to the masses. We aim to bring the local business ethics of superior customer service with down to earth, personable, knowledgable staff to the wider market. We have learnt a lot from the people of Bolton and hopefully these skills can be seen today, even though we now serve people the world over. Umbrellaworld still fly the "BOLTON" flag and very proud to still be based here in the Nortex Business Centre. With our warehouse holding huge stocks of umbrellas and nearly 1,100 lines we are constantly looking for new and innovative suppliers. We are the largest supplier of men's, women's and children's umbrellas in the North. We are authorised main dealers for Totes, Fulton, Cath Kidston, Lulu Guiness, Galleria, Kidorable & Senz to name just a few. Our product database is expanding day by day and we really do hope to find you whatever you need. So please get in touch and tell us what you would like to see here and we will do our best to get it. Call anytime on 01204 238 300.

The Present......Since 2009 when we decided to branch out into manufacturing products we have also expanded our business into distribution and we are now very proud to be the UK distributors for the amazing Blunt Umbrella Brand. Alongside our own range of clear dome umbrellas, our wedding umbrellas and our range of Golf umbrellas we manufacture a superb range of floral and art print umbrellas which we just love and are always looking for new designs to add to the list. Our newest venture is the BrollyDry Range which are 2 products we are very proud off. The BrollyDry is a case for carrying your wet umbrella with you - no more need for the soggy carrier bag! Adding the Slinger model to the range in 2015 enabled our customers to get the same fantastic product for use with their walking or golf umbrellas too!

Alongside this, we continue to have a solid presence in the corporate market with Umbrellas for Business. With a real passion for ensuring that companies of all sizes can make use of the potential that can be gained from branded merchandise, we now offer a full bespoke, printing and bulk buying service. Using our wealth of contacts we have put together a really fantastic range of umbrellas that can be used to ensure you and your business stand out from the crowd. Our knowledge, spanning 15 years focusing purely on umbrellas, means we really do believe we can supply you with what you need. If our current range does not show you what you want, we will do our best to get it. Dealing with the promotional industry can sometimes be a headache and so we try to take the "aarrggghhh" out of it and allow you to focus on what is important...the business! So if using umbrellas for advertising, promotions and marketing, sounds like it could be of interest - whatever the event- please do give us a call on 01204 238 300 and we can have a chat.

The Future..... is looking bright! The team here at Umbrellaworld HQ (office based are Chris, Rebecca, Kay or Vicki ) are always happy to hear from our customers. So please stay in touch and watch this space as we ensure umbrellaworld continues to stand out from the crowd!
