The Basil Bangs umbrellas are designed with consideration, made with care, and built to last. Basil Bangs also consider the range of limited edition beach umbrellas the perfect canvas for showcasing amazing art, inspired by vintage brollies, surfing and contemporary design and art.
Based on Sydney’s northern beaches, Basil Bangs is headed up by husband-and-wife duo Mike Durante and Krista Huebner and brings together their creativity and passions for product design, surfing, art and textiles. A love for vintage umbrellas and a pursuit of great design inspired the vision for creating a collection of ‘contemporary classics’, a range of beach umbrellas inspired by the 1960’s and 70’s but decisively modern in engineering and finishes.
Known for distinctive prints rich in colour and unique in artistic expression their approach to design is instinctive and fun, involving regular collaboration with artists and designers from around the world. Not only for the home, Basil Bangs proudly works with the trade and commercial sector, bringing sophisticated shade and custom designs to some of our favourite cafes, restaurants and hotels around Australia, and now in Canada.

The Basil Bangs rain umbrella collection is a large golf-style umbrella perfect for long walks with the dog, by the sports field when you wish you were back home in bed, or perhaps even a game of golf! These umbrellas stay true to the signature Basil Bangs DNA - boasting luxurious finishes, premium materials, and rich colorful prints.
Basil Bangs is proud of the finishes we think add a little somethin-somethin. Laser-etched branding, double layer fabric, a custom ferrule, and runner, tailored rosettes… small things that add up to a lot. The single-piece turned and bent Maple timber handle and shaft transform what could be just another umbrella into a piece of design and true arm candy.
