Our History

In 1956, in a small factory in Whitechapel in the East End of London, Arnold Fulton, inventor and Mechanical Engineer, began designing and producing umbrellas, and Fulton Umbrellas was born.

Arnold’s dedication to reliability and efficiency, and his fascination with improving umbrella frame design, led to him pioneering specialist machinery and manufacturing processes to enhance quality and streamline umbrella production, in a way that the umbrella industry had never seen before.

Fulton Umbrellas is proud to be the largest supplier of quality umbrellas and rainwear in the United Kingdom today. We are the real specialists when it comes to umbrellas and we passionately strive to push the boundaries of development in dealing with the inclement British weather.

Our Brand

Setting us apart from the rest, Fulton began collaboration with exciting British designers starting with Cath Kidston in 2003. We were continuously approached by designers to participate in their accessories collections and this gave rise to the idea of linking the best of Fulton with the best of the design world, a first for the umbrella industry in the UK.
