The Beau Nuage quality - 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).
Folding umbrellas are often of poor workmanship, cannot resist in windy conditions and have a very short useful life. Apart from paying attention to the manufacture and the choice of materials of our umbrellas, Beau Nuage attaches importance above all to their quality control.
We are now the only umbrella brand to test 100% of our umbrellas. Even our absorbent covers go through quality checks. This work is carried out in partnership with La Fondation des Amis de l'Atelier, which employs people with disabilities (ESAT de Vitry-Sur-Seine).
Our minimum quality thresholds require the Fondation des Amis de l'Atelier to set aside certain umbrellas when they have a small defect. To avoid waste and help people in need, we made the choice to donate all our unusable Beau Nuage products to the association Ma Ressourcerie.
