What is an Umbrella?

An umbrella is a tool people use to protect from the sun’s heat and the rain’s wetness. 

Umbrellas keep people dry and help them avoid unnecessary exposure to the elements. 

Umbrellas come in many types; some include:

  • Golf umbrellas
  • Classic umbrellas
  • Solid stick umbrellas

When were umbrellas first used?

Humans have always pursued comfort. 

Being hot and sweaty or wet and cold are not preferred states for people. 

Umbrellas allow us to protect ourselves from hot sunrays and cold raindrops. 

People have been using umbrellas for thousands of years. 

Some of the earliest uses of umbrellas came from Egypt, China, Greece, and Assyria. 

The word umbrellas comes from the Latin word umbra, which means shadow. 

The first waterproof umbrellas were made in China.

They were initially made to provide shade, but the addition of the waxed lacquer allowed them to repel water. 

What were originally umbrellas made of?

Early civilizations made umbrellas out of all sorts of materials. 

Simple palm lead umbrellas were made to protect people from the sun’s heat. 

Later on, animal skin and other more meticulously woven umbrellas were made.

Umbrellas and the sexes

We all benefit from the use of umbrellas. 

However, when umbrella technology finally reached Europe, it became fashionable for women. 

Umbrellas became the standard in fashion for women by the 16th century in places like England and France. 

Over time, umbrellas became synonymous with wealth and status. 

Should I have an umbrella?

Umbrellas are used in every climate and condition. 

They protect us from immediate exposure to the elements. 

Umbrellas can keep us dry, warm, or cool, depending on how we use them. 

The umbrella is an essential household item that everyone would benefit from owning.
