I am about to tell you about Marisol. No, not Miami Housewife Marysol Patton, but the most chic and ethical umbrella under the sun (or rain and even snow) with a philanthropic touch….and may I say, the perfect gift for the woman who has everything?
Meet Marisol, the umbrella. Thus far, Kelly Clarkson, Glenn Close, Patricia Arquette, Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour, Pat Mitchell, and Queen Raina of Jordan are just a handful of the ladies who define fashion and who are sporting them around the globe. These unique and rare African wax prints and vibrant handles make them truly one of a kind. Ideal, especially during summer rainy season, one never knows when they’ll get caught in a rain or snowstorm.
Et voila, as Daft Punk sings in their latest hit Get Lucky, here is “the gift that keeps on giving.” Twenty percent of the proceeds from the sale of the Marisol are donated to women survivors of sexual violence in The Democratic Republic of Congo to rebuild their lives at the City of Joy.
The price for the Marisol umbrella is $455. They are sold in New York at ABC Carpet & Homes as well as online at www.marisols.org.
