If you’ve been walking or driving around town recently, you may have spotted some fashionable items twirling on the shoulders of ladies as they walk. No, your eyes do not deceive you; you are seeing parasols, the beautiful and stylish alternative to umbrellas for shading the skin from the harmful rays of the sun.
Para De Sol is a new company located in the heart of George Town at the Flagship Building on Harbour Drive.
It sells beautiful, handcrafted parasols that catch the eye and make you suddenly realise that you need one of them; immediately. They come in different styles and colours, are individually made from eco-friendly, biodegradable bamboo, rice paper and cotton, and are frankly just fantastic, portable works of art.
They are light, and so easy to carry – the perfect choice for keeping you cool in the Caribbean sun, and are a wonderful accessory for that special wedding. Affordable and elegant.
Parasols are actually an ancient Asian symbol of nobility and wealth, but now they are available to everyone thanks to Para De Sol. The range of designs includes Caribbean colours like Wild Banana and Lime Mojito, and there are even prints with Stingray City, the Cayman Islands flag and Starfish Point beautifully rendered on the material for all to see.
These will make an excellent gift for your visitors from abroad, and no doubt you’ll end up with one or ten for yourself and others.
Beyond the collection in stock, Para De Sol is happy to offer customised parasols with the wording, colours and design of your choice. Just imagine your own personal design on parasols at your wedding, or special birthday or indeed any event that needs that little extra touch.
Scratching your head over what to arrange for your little girl’s next birthday do? How about a parasol party? Para De Sol can provide all the parasols and paraphernalia you need to create a giant craft event, and best of all, the guests can take their creations home.
You really need to see the parasols from Para De Sol. You can stay cool in style, save your skin and save the environment. Part proceeds from every sale go to the Cayman Cancer Society in the fight to prevent skin cancer.
Get yourself a parasol and do a little twirl.
