Petit Futé's opinion on H2O UMBRELLAS
When you come to Normandy, you will have only one wish: that it rains! Nestled in the heart of the small village of Crépon, 10 kilometres south-west of Courseulles-sur-Mer, between Caen and Bayeux, the incomparable H2O workshop-boutique, specialist in the making of haute couture umbrellas, is doing well. "Hope is to go out in the sun and come back in the rain": the house makes its own the quote from Jules Renard. Created in 1995 by Martine and Claude Collard and taken over in 2018 by Yves-Charles Boccassini, the elegant port brand develops a few new products each year. This time, the relooked store houses a "so british" model: the mast and the curved handle are made of one solid piece of wood and this English style assembly gives it its specificity. "I'm singing in the rain, just singin' in the rain! You haven't finished singing: other handmade models, from the very classic to the most unusual - the Passvent, the Canapluie® (for hiking), the golf umbrella or the "customised" one - make the umbrella no longer the anonymous object that you forget in the corner. A visit to H2O, where superstition is no longer an option in the face of a procession of open umbrellas, and you'll break down to the point where you'll no longer be able to part with your precious possession (guaranteed for life and repairable), or spoil your family and friends with it. A beautiful gift idea "made in Normandy". Great! "Y'r'pleut ! "Don't leave so quickly. Here, there are also elegant "anti UV" umbrellas. Well, yes, of course! After the rain, good weather!
