To fringe, or not to fringe. That is the question. With approximately half our range made up of fringed beach umbrellas, the choice is yours.
We think the luscious, extra long fringing lends our brollies a beautiful vintage umbrella vibe…perfect for lazy days. Not for everyone, fringe-free is the choice for those seeking a more lightweight option.
Great Canvas. Great Art.
Our umbrellas are designed with consideration, made with care, and built to last. We also consider our range of limited edition beach umbrellas the perfect canvas for showcasing amazing art.
Inspired by our love for vintage brollies, surfing and contemporary art and design, we relish collaborating with artists and designers on exclusive artist prints and unique designs.
Materials that Matter.
We believe in continuous product development and improvement, and are constantly tweaking things to make them better. So we use high tensile outdoor canvas on our canopies, which is designed to withstand rips and tears, and our metals are high grade alloys or stainless steel. We also use high grade inks and printing processes, and treat our fabrics to not only offer UPF50+ sun protection but also protection against the weather.
Easy to use.
No more lost lower poles, fighting the wind, or needing an extra arm to assemble your umbrella. Instead, the (*ahem* patented) Basil Hinge is easy to use, and means set up is quick and swear-word free. Simply unfold the poles, fix in the ground, lock the hinge at your preferred angle and you’re set!
Take me with you.
Using your umbrella should be as easy as slinging it over your shoulder and heading off to the beach, so all Basil Bangs sun umbrellas include a matching carry case to safely store and carry your umbrella. The carry bag also doubles as a nifty sand anchor for when you might need a tether for some extra security.
Quality over Quantity.
We firmly believe that the best way to be sustainable is to ‘buy better’ and look after what you’ve got. We want your Bangs brolly to become your much loved, treasured vintage umbrella!
So we independently test our products during production, as well as each individual component, to ensure that they meet quality standards. Our factory adheres to independently monitored environmental standards, and we source our high grade materials with intent. We also offer a 12month warranty on our products, as well as a repair service.
Custom fixtures & fittings
The ergonomically designed Runner slides easily up the pole, and draws the eye to our custom-colour ribs.
The screw spike at the bottom of the pole makes it easy to dig into sand and grass.
The Basil Bangs branded top cap and press-stud gives that extra Basil touch.
*note some umbrellas do not feature all of these items.
Shade, luxurious shade
There’s no need to elbow your mate out of the way in the quest for more shade – the extra large 1.8m wide canopy will comfortably shade two adults and a little one.
