Umbrella Inside Out - The Final Moment Is Here!


With the Umbrella Inside Out Competitions, I.D. Magazine, The Sustainable Style Foundation, and TreeHugger asked for a new umbrella, and re-used umbrella couture. Designers from around the world answered. Last week, readers chose their favorite former umbrella garment. Now it's time to choose the winning umbrella!

Our final two umbrella designs take distinct Cradle to Cradle approaches. Highlights of the Pollinate include fashionable interchangeable canopies, and complete biodegradability. Rather than feeding into a biological system, the Crayella allows for easy street repair and technical upcycling. Which one is the best Cradle to Cradle design? Find out more about the designs, and comment! Choose the winner! Then RSVP to see the finalist designs in person!
