All Jardinico Caractère side post umbrellas can rotate 360 degrees and tilt in height. Ease of use and functionality were a priority in the development of the opening systems. Each canopy is handmade with Dickson Sunbrella performance fabric for exceptional weather resistance and colorfastness.

The designers of this international shade product were Jardinico’s CEO, Bruno Vandeputte and technical designer, Eveline Moreel van Lutho. Vandeputte’s 15-year history working in the world of outdoor furniture, textiles and umbrellas created the artistry of each umbrella’s design with Moreel van Lutho’s technical prowess being instrumental in the superior functionality.
