Parasol-UK creates the most beautiful, luxury garden parasols worthy of the grandest country setting or a small city terrace.

Parasol-UK is run by two old friends, Polly and Sarah. Polly and her family have opened their garden, Horkesley Hall in Essex, with the National Garden Scheme since 1997 and when they set up their business, they knew that this was the charity they really wanted to support.  They and the National Garden Scheme share the belief that time spent in beautiful gardens brings huge benefits to us all, and the desire to support a superb selection of nursing and health charities which at some point will benefit almost everyone.  


Parasol-UK also sustains four generations of one family in India, whose workmanship and passion for their parasols is inspiring; each parasol is a waterproof hand-made canopy with a plain cream outer and block-printed interiors on hand turned wooden frames in pale, polished cedar.  

 “Parasol-UK is delighted to donate 3% of every parasol sale to the National Garden Scheme and proud to be an official supporter to a charity which offers so much both to garden lovers and to causes close to our hearts,” says founder Polly Eddis.
