OUR STORY

When Cheeky Umbrella's founder Jen moved to notoriously rainy Vancouver after University, she was commuting downtown to work on public transit, and owning an umbrella was a necessity.  At first, she bought the standard drugstore umbrellas, and found herself frustrated with broken umbrella after broken umbrella. So next, she turned to some higher quality umbrellas, but they had a hefty pricetag. She bit the bullet and paid the high price, but the first one she left on a bus, the second was stolen at a restaurant, and the third didn't last much longer than the drugstore umbrella before it broke.  She wondered, "How could a rainy city like Vancouver not have any quality umbrellas at prices that wouldn’t make you cry if you left it on a bus?"  And there the idea for Cheeky Umbrella was born. 

The business began in 2008 selling high quality women's umbrellas through retail shops, but we began to get more and more requests for custom printed umbrellas for businesses, at the same time as the retail landscape was changing.  Eventually custom umbrellas became the majority of our business and our sole focus.  Today we manufacture both rain umbrellas and patio umbrellas for businesses' promotional purposes.  The business has evolved and changed, but idea behind it has stayed the same - creating high quality umbrellas at affordable prices.

WHERE DOES THE NAME "CHEEKY" COME FROM?

The way we do business at Cheeky Umbrella is with a rebellious or “cheeky” spirit that challenges the status quo in our industry.   Here's how we're different: 

  • We created a small collection of products curated by an umbrella expert, our founder who has been in the umbrella business over ten years.
  • Our collection is focused on quality. We manufacture our own umbrellas to ensure we have complete control of the materials and workmanship.
  • We sell our products direct to you (no middleman/distributor) so we can offer affordable prices without sacrificing quality.
  • Our team provides advice and knowledge to ensure you get a final product that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

By doing things a bit different than the norm, we are able to offer better quality and service for an affordable price.
