Our Summer Round up and News

We thought it would be good to give you a brief heads-up about what we have been up to! 

As you might well know, we are old friends introduced by our children many years ago. Now that those children have abandoned us for university, we have combined our enthusiasm and other (fast-improving!)  skills to focus on Parasol-UK.  We want to supply ethically sourced, gorgeous wares to lovely, stylish people.

This is a young business designing, sourcing and producing a select range of homewares and garden accessories. Our flagship item is Luxury Garden Parasols in the highest quality with beautiful hand-blocked inner canopies, but we also offer SO much more! Browse some of our collection here and visit the website to see our full range.

We'd also love you to follow our instagram @parasoluk and spread the word by forwarding this to your nicest friends! And if you’d like to, please get  in touch with us – we would be only too happy to help!

Love, Polly & Sarah xxx

Vintage Kantha Cushions, Bath Mats & Rugs



FLORA is a 20" x 14" vintage textile cushion backed with beautiful stone-coloured linen and a zip.  This is our smaller size and absolutely divine on a chair on bed.



ANYANI is a vintage textile cushion size 20" x 14" backed with beautiful stone-coloured linen and a zip. Think Peter Rabbit's garden - a lovely series of boxes with a flower in each!



Our GREAT BRITISH STRIPE is just a gorgeous soft red, white and blue cotton bath mat - reworked vintage kantha with a new cotton binding. They are soft underfoot, machine washable and SO much more interesting and stylish than plain ones!



We have a small collection of charming sun bed cushions STRIPED and BUTTONED CHEVRONS shown here.

All these Kanthas are ideal for upholstering - an ottoman, a bed head or sunbed cushions. Buy your own piece and adapt it as you wish.


The Art of Fire - Garden fireplace/fire pit


The Art of Fire garden fireplace / fire pit  is designed and manufactured in Great Britain.  Made in stainless steel, the 'fire pit' is  a stunning and stylish addition to any garden or patio.  Designed to throw out enough heat to keep you and your guests warm on a chilly evening, with the added benefit of drawing the smoke up the chimney so it doesn't spoil your party!

Starburst Hand Stitched Tablecloth


Starburst hand- stitched Tablecloth

Inspired by a glorious vintage Kantha, these very special tablecloths have a printed pink border and green trellis but the stars have been faithfully copied and hand-embroidered just like the original pictured here.




 Block printed cotton napkins

Pretty and practical, Parasol-UK's block printed napkins are larger than most modern offerings, being 20". With a finished hem and in patterns and colours which will suit any stylish European setting, not to mention that they machine wash again and again, they are both beautiful and practical.
