The Beau Nuage umbrellas - and their patented absorbent cover

The Beau Nuage umbrellas are of high quality and accompanied by a patented absorbent cover. You can keep them dry in your bag



Le Mini

Top 10 questions everyone is asking themselves

1) I can't make up my mind! How do I choose between the Mini, the Original, the Automatic or the Gentleman?

We understand you: choosing between four umbrellas of such high quality is a Cornelian choice!

If you're looking for a small, light and practical umbrella that's easy to carry around on a daily basis, then we recommend Le Mini.

The difference between L'Original and Le Mini is that L'Original is slightly longer and heavier, but also more compact and stable. Its eight ribs give you a better grip and its ergonomic gel handle with memory shape is extremely comfortable.

L'Automatique, on the other hand, is wider and more robust than the other two. It is a little more bulky, but its automatic opening and closing can be very practical and efficient if you are frequently on the move.

Finally, Le Gentleman represents another world of umbrellas. If for you, elegance and comfort are more important than the practicality of a small umbrella, you have found the right umbrella for you!

2) How does the Beau Nuage drying cover work ?

Beau Nuage has invented a revolutionary solution to make your life easier when the rain is out. We have developed an absorbent cover to keep umbrellas always dry!

Our cover consists of a triple-layer absorption technology, which is now a patented technology.

The inner layer, called the absorption layer, is a special microfibre fabric that can absorb up to 200 times its weight in water.

The middle layer, known as the repellent layer, is a perfectly waterproof material with a dual function. It keeps the outer layer always dry, preventing the drops from passing through, but it also constantly brings the drops back into the microfibre, allowing it to breathe and therefore dry effectively.

Finally, the outer layer is an umbrella cloth coated with a Teflon® coating, which is completely hydrophobic and pleasant to the touch.

3) After using them, should I dry my Beau Nuage umbrella and cover?

The Beau Nuage cover is capable of absorbing up to 200 times its weight in water. It is therefore not necessary to dry it systematically. It is designed to allow you to move around with a free spirit on rainy days!

However, after heavy showers, we still advise you to dry your Beau Nuage cover and umbrella when you get home, just like any other accessory that is subject to rain.

4) Are the Beau Nuage umbrellas durable?

Beau Nuage umbrellas are designed with innovative materials that are both flexible and robust. These materials make them stronger and more pleasant than other umbrellas.

Their pole is an alloy of steel and aluminium, in order to be neither too heavy (steel only) nor too brittle (aluminium only).

Also, the ribs of our umbrellas are made of flexible materials such as fibreglass. On the other hand, we prefer very robust and rustproof materials at the junctions between the ribs, where we preferred nickel.

Our 200 threads/inch canvas is denser than average (180 threads/inch) and the seams of the canvas and ribs are made by hand.

Last but not least, our unique Beau Nuage cover allows you to never lose your umbrella, always keeping it dry in your bag. In this sense, Beau Nuage umbrellas are certainly much more durable than others!

5) Do the Beau Nuage umbrellas have a manual or an automatic opening?

It depends on the model! Le Mini and L'Original have manual opening, while L'Automatique and Le Gentleman have automatic opening. Even better, the aptly named "L'Automatique" even has an automatic closing!

Automatic opening/closing is a great innovation that allows you to open and close your umbrella with complete peace of mind.

But to be of good quality, as is the case with L'Automatique Beau Nuage, this technology requires a very stiff spring. It is therefore a technology that is compatible above all with large, sturdy umbrellas such as Le Gentleman.

This is why we have preferred to stay with manual openings of excellent quality for Le Mini and  L'Original. Thanks to it, both umbrellas are compact and easy to carry!

6) The model or color I want is out of stock... Will it come back on the site soon?

And yes unfortunately it happens that all our Beau Nuage have found someone to take care of them!

And in this case you will have to be patient ... and wait a while before you can order THE umbrella you love.

We continuously produce our four models (L'Original, Le Mini, L'Automatique, Le Gentleman) but not in all colours.

Our four timeless colours (Everlasting BlackMidnight BlueGarnet Red and Star Yellow) are produced continuously. So you can be sure that they will be back on our cloudy site.

The other colours are capsule collections produced in very small quantities and are essentially ephemeral. So jump on the occasion when you see them. Once the stock is sold out, it will be very difficult for you to get them.

7) Am I entitled to a discount if I take several Beau Nuage umbrell

No more excuses not to go out cheerfully together on rainy mornings...

8) Where are Beau Nuage umbrellas made?

No umbrella frame factory currently exists in France. For this reason, our umbrellas are currently manufactured in China in a single partner factory with whom we work with a high quality and trust. Some French brands offer umbrellas made in France, but this is actually only a small part of the final assembly. Our long-term dream would be to open our own frame factory in France. This is a long term job that will require a lot of time and effort.

In addition to all the design and conception by our cloud team, a lot of post-production work is done by multiple service providers in France. As folding umbrellas are very fragile, we are the only umbrella brand to test 100% of its products. This titanic work is carried out in ESAT by people with disabilities. We have very strict criteria to ensure that the Beau Nuage umbrellas you receive are of perfect quality. This obliges us to reject a certain number of umbrellas.

In order to avoid any waste, we pass on all umbrellas set aside are passed on to resource centres which give them to people in need or recycle them when they are too damaged.

9) How is the delivery made and how long does it take? Do you deliver to all countries?

Once your order has been confirmed, our logistician prepares your Beau Nuage with love. It's all about pampering them a little before they leave!

He then passes them on to Colissimo, who brings them to your home quickly, fully aware that time is running out until the next rain! Delivery times vary but most deliveries take 2 to 5 working days in France, 5 to 8 working days in Europe and slightly more elsewhere in the world. Do not hesitate to contact us via our contact form (https://www.beau- if ever your Beau Nuage takes time to arrive at your home!

NB. Our Beau Nuage are volunteers to protect people all over the world from the rain. We therefore deliver to every country on the planet!

10) Apparently every Beau Nuage umbrella has a first name. Is that true?

Indeed each Beau Nuage has its own first name, because it is above all a daily companion! This first name does not depend on its color or its model: it is randomly generated by our first name algorithm!

When you receive your Beau Nuage, you will be able to discover its first name on its label. Remember to remember it before throwing it away. It's important anyway!
