Brolly me! The most expensive umbrellas in the world


“It’s a big enough umbrella, but it’s always me that ends up getting wet.” sings Sting….


The brolly was first used in public  around 1750 by Jonas Hanway. He was initially ridiculed but the others quickly saw the wisdom in carrying such an accessory and adopted it as one of their own.

The humble umbrella has come a long way from being an item used for protection against the sun and the rain. Nowadays brollies are a fashion statement and the worlds costliest umbrellas vouch for the same. Besides the brand name which gives the umbrella its prestige and level of luxury, in some its all about the materials that are used in making them and some are even encrusted with jewels!
