THE STORY OF THE FOLDABLE UMBRELLA
Our Brilliant Brolly Campaign celebrates the invention of the “magical umbrella” that readily folds into our hands. Slawa Horowitz-Duldig invented, patented and marketed the modern folding umbrella in Vienna in 1929. She was forced to sell her patents in 1938 when, together with her husband, the sculptor Karl Duldig, and baby Eva the family fled Vienna and began their long journey to Australia via Switzerland and Singapore. The umbrella prototype, drawings, and patent documents are key works in the Duldig Studio’s collection and fundamental to the Duldig Story.
