April’s Necessary Luxury – Pasotti Ombrelli

April showers bring May flowers…  And if you have a Pasotti umbrella, you’ll stay dry in floral style!  Since 1956, the Giacomini family have been making the most beautiful umbrellas  in Castellucchio, a tiny town near Verona, Italy.

We love the fact that Pasotti Ombrelli is a family business (like ours!), founded by Eva Giacomini, who produced “one of a kind” umbrellas that she sold directly, sometimes from the back of her scooter.  The company is now run by the second generation, daughter Ernesta and her husband Mauro.

The company produces over 30,000 umbrellas a year from the finest Italian fabrics and with the most incredible handmade handles.  Some embellishmenst include Swarovski crystals and gemstones, hand-painted designs and hand-sewn petals.

Rain or shine, we think a Pasotti umbrella is this month’s Necessary Luxury!  Don’t you?
