The Beau Nuage concepts - Trendy and innovative rain accessories
At Beau Nuage, we are committed to revisiting the rain classics with style and innovation. From umbrellas to backpacks, we have completely reconceptualised their design and manufacturing process to bring you accessories that make your life easier. We want to make you love the rain! Discover why below...
Tired of carrying wet umbrellas only to end up leaving them in a store?
Beau Nuage has invented a revolutionary solution to make your life easier when the rain falls!
We have developed and patented the world's first absorbent cover. Thanks to its three-layer technology, our cover consumes raindrops and keeps your umbrella permanently dry with its microfibre inner layer. It is made of extremely fine fibres and its special density allows it to absorb up to 200 times its own weight in water.
The intermediate layer and the outer layer keep the raindrops inside the cover and guarantee a perfectly waterproof cover.
All you have to do is store your umbrella in its cover and then in your bag to remove the fear of soaking your belongings.
Our umbrellas are designed to be strong, practical and lightweight. Their solid and innovative materials make them the highest quality umbrellas and guarantee optimal use and a longer life than ordinary umbrellas. The mast is an alloy of steel and aluminium. This allows it to be robust (impossible to twist) while remaining lightweight.
The eight whalebones are made of fibreglass and aluminium in order to be flexible and not to put too much tension on the stainless nickel junctions. This process optimizes the whalebones' resistance to strong winds. Finally, the fabric is denser than the average (200 threads/in² instead of 180 or 190 on conventional umbrellas) and more hydrophobic (TEFLON coating).
Innovative waterproof backpack !
Designed with materials inspired by our umbrellas (waterproof microfibre fabric with a hydrophobic coating), the Beau Nuage backpack is also waterproof and will keep your belongings protected from the rain... but also from theft! It is well known that you are never completely comfortable wearing a backpack when there are a lot of people around you.
The fear of having your backpack opened and your things stolen is real. Thanks to its back opening, the Beau Nuage backpack protects against theft. You will now be able to move freely!
No materials from animals are used in the manufacture of our backpacks.
CONTROL AND REQUIREMENT
Folding umbrellas are often of poor workmanship, do not resist windy conditions and have a very short life span. In order to avoid these inconveniences at all costs, Beau Nuage attaches particular importance to the quality control of each of its umbrellas.
The materials are meticulously chosen, the production process is monitored on a daily basis and we carry out a quality control of the umbrellas upon receipt of the production but also before each shipment.
To do this, Beau Nuage works in partnership with La Fondation des Amis de l'Atelier, which employs people with disabilities (ESAT de Vitry-Sur-Seine). They control the quality of each umbrella and Beau Nuage cover and thus ensure their perfect functioning. A great partnership!
Made In France
Entirely made in France, the Beau Nuage backpack represents our commitment to French know-how. The entire process was done in the Rhône-Alpes region: design in Lyon, model making in Valence, product development and machining near Saint-Etienne.
We are convinced that Made in France is a guarantee of quality and respect for the environment, two values that are close to our hearts.
