They currently export to the U.S.A, Japan, and Australia as well as servicing the local market here in New Zealand.
What this company is looking for now and what will essentially put the icing on the cake is a distributor for the UK. The weather conditions in the UK being not that different here in New Zealand will no-doubt secure the products’ success in that market. They will however welcome all enquiries from other countries, infact pretty much anywhere that has strong winds and rain.
From a vision to fuse form and function into one amazing product, this Auckland Company consisting of two young men has produced an umbrella like no other available anywhere in the world.
Lead by innovation, inspired by safety and a design brief of superior performance, has resulted in a range of umbrellas unlike anything available before now.
This umbrella design differs from all others in that it has no sharp points at the edge of the canopy giving the user the confidence to use it safely even in the most congested of crowds, nobody will get a painful poke in the eye from this brollie.
Also of huge benefit is the low profile and tensioned canopy which allows the Blunt umbrella to sit effortlessly and be easily managed in the wind and provide maximum protection from the elements. For those of you in cities such as Chicago and Wellington, life has just become so much easier.
The innovative design means the canopy will not tear at the tips or easily turn inside out. This umbrella has even been to a wind-tunnel for extensive testing. I doubt that, that this can be said for many others.
Being simple to use was also important in the design brief for this company so they ensured that the push-pull runner makes the Blunt easy to open. A concealed catch keeps the Blunt closed when not in use.
The canopy being taut and smooth as a result of the innovative design with a distinctive rounded silhouette is not only effective against the elements it also looks incredibly stylish.
Strength and durability make this umbrella a genuinely environmentally friendly choice in that it will last ten times longer than it’s competitors.
