Huifeng Custom Umbrellas “Opens” a New World over Your Head

In the eyes of many, umbrella is probably nothing but a tool that provides shade or keeps out rain and snow. However, for Huifeng Umbrella, the dazzling custom umbrellas are not only traditional articles of daily use, but they also reflect personality.

The custom-made inner layer of the umbrella unfolds a picture that speaks for individuality and creativity.

Various types of “personalized umbrellas” can be found everywhere in the exhibition hall of Huifeng Umbrella.

“This inverted umbrella is different from other ones. It closes in reverse.” said Justin as he grabbed a seemingly ordinary umbrella from the table and pressed the button on the handle. In an instant, the umbrella folded in the opposite direction.

According to Justin, design of the umbrella was inspired in a rainy day. “I got in the car, with a dripping wet umbrella in my hand. At that moment, I wondered why I had to always close the umbrella before entering the car. I already got wet from the rain as I tried to fold the umbrella.

Besides, the umbrella would, as likely as not, wet my clothes and other objects in the car after I got in.” Justin showed the umbrella again and said: “Look, press this button and the umbrella automatically closes in the reverse direction. The rainwater on the umbrella cover is trapped on the inside. This stops rainwater from dropping and saves people from embarrassment.”


As observed by the journalist, the reverse-folding umbrella has two layers in total, with a 20cm-thick interlayer. The inner layer surface is evenly distributed with several round holes. “During development, we found that the inner layer of the umbrella creased very easily. Afterwards, we put round holes there, which not only reduced resistance during folding but also facilitated ventilation and heat dissipation under the umbrella.” explained Justin. It took a whole year for him to design and produce this reverse-folding umbrella.


In the past, graphic patterns were commonly seen on the outer surfaces of umbrellas. However, on the personalized umbrella designed by Justin, the patterns, be them portrait photos, animal icons or landscape pictures, are all printed on inner layers of the umbrellas. “Since the outer layer is a piece of black rubber-coated fabric toasted under the higher temperature of 280℃, the pattern printed on the inner layer looks nicer by contrast.”

Justine took out an umbrella customized for students from Hong and said: “This is the advantage from using black rubber-coated fabric. See? This umbrella has been used for 3 years, but its color has not faded a bit.” He added: “I hope that this umbrella will remind these children of the beautiful days back in school after they start working.”

600 custom umbrellas create a far better effect than ordinary advertised umbrellas.

Competition in China’s umbrella manufacturing industry has always been fierce. Ahead of the game is Hangzhou Paradise Umbrella Group, the industry’s leader that produces umbrellas in batches. What’s more, there are a host of small processing factories catching up. How did Huifeng Umbrella, a company founded 30 years ago, manage to get a share of the market?

“The key is to grasp changes of the market in time.” answered Justin. “Swift action” is the recipe for his company’s growth.


A few years ago when average umbrellas faced sales bottleneck, Justin changed the company’s direction timely and started making advertising umbrellas for some healthcare products. However, soon he found that this type of low-end products could never out-compete low-cost family workshops. Again, Justin wanted to look for breakthroughs and eventually targeted at custom-made umbrella business in line with the idea that “even one single umbrella can be custom-made.”

The cost to produce one custom-made umbrella was no small. At the beginning of 2014, Justin invested over 200,000 RMB in buying a printing machine for designing and printing graphic patterns of custom-made umbrellas. As Justin explained, customization means that the volume of orders will not be big. Developing a new production process involves high cost, and therefore is not cost-efficient for most umbrella manufacturers. That is why many traditional umbrella manufacturers usually make one production process and then start mass printing and production based on it.

Nevertheless, Justin did not hold back investment. After the new printing machine was purchased, the company received a special order. A large-scale athletic meeting was about to be held in Changchun city. The organizer wanted to print the photos of more than 1,000 athletes on the surfaces of umbrellas. Since the photo on each umbrella was different, making the desired umbrellas in a traditional way would be extremely expensive. However, the technician of the company pulled an all nighter to study how to use the new equipment, and figured it out eventually. At last, the company successfully delivered all the umbrellas ahead of the athletic meeting.

The key to making a custom printing umbrella is to ensure zero error in color fastness and joint areas on the umbrella cover.

“Many foreign trade and design companies have purchased custom-made umbrellas from us.” said Justin. He felt much honored whenever a customer decided to choose his product over so many other umbrella manufacturers on the market. Currently, the umbrellas that are custom-made and sold account for 60% of his company’s overall business. What makes Justine more confident is that individual-based customization has certain technical challenges and not every ordinary umbrella factory can be up to this task.

According to Justin, the most difficult and most important part in making a custom-made umbrella is absolutely zero error in each and every joint area on umbrella covers.

He continued: “We have had multiple years of experience in this industry, and have obtained quite a few patents so far. We will make full use of these advantages in the future.”

Currently, Justin plans to purchase several more production lines and transform them for custom-made products. He said: “We have to take the lead in the industry. That motivates us to produce newer and higher-quality products to attract more customers.”

Pongee Fabric: Uses and Advantages

What  is Pongee fabric?

Pongee fabric

Pongee is a medium-weight, balanced, woven fabric with an irregular filling and a fine regular warp. It was originally wild-silk fabric, but today it’s used to refer to a fabric with an appearance of irregular filling yarns and fine warp yarns. The most common form of pongee fabric is the naturally coloured light-weight silk-like, plain weave fabric usually with a slubbed effect.
The most common uses include dresses, umbrellas, blouses, etc. They also make excellent linings in many types of garments from jackets to suits and dresses to coats. The fabric is fully washable, which makes it the best alternatives compared acetate and other more heavy-weight linings. The fabric is durable, strong and tightly woven which also makes it aesthetic as a lining for finished products.

Pongee fabric

History of pongee fabric
Pongee was a very important export to the United States from China in the early 20th century. It’s still being woven from pure silk by many mills across most China towns, especially in Sichuan, Zhejiang, Anhui, and Jiangsu provinces.
Pongee was first woven by hand for personal use; the Amami Islanders of China wore it until it was prohibited by the Satsuma clan in 1720 for personal wearing. Later on, Pongee was produced primarily to be given to the Satsuma clan as a tribute. From 1870, silk pongee was open for sale to the common market and quickly become a very popular commodity. In 1895, the mud-dyeing technique was introduced and with it came the Glossed thread as raw pongee material.

1897 Looms made weaving more efficient and easy, and the fabric heavily infiltrated the textile industry. The Silk Pongee Union was formed in 1901 to carry out inspections and improve the reliability and quality of pongee. The binding machine developed in 1902 enabled fabricators to develop more detailed and intricate pongee patterns.

By the end of 1958, fabricators were able to rub various colours into the pongee threads developed. Various arrays of pongee have been created over the years while still preserving the tradition Why Pongee is the most common material used for making umbrellas.

Umbrella manufacturers always want to overcome their competitors in the industry, for this reason, they are always looking for high-quality materials. The fabric is probably the most important part of an umbrella followed by the frame. The canopy is made from various fabric materials including Nylon, polyester, Pongee fabric and so on, out of which pongee is the most common use due to its superior quality.

Pongee fabric is preferred for creating high-grade umbrellas since it has desirable features of resistance to breaking and waterproofing, qualities that have attracted most umbrella manufacturers.

Another advantage that makes pongee fabric preferred for use on umbrellas is that it’s easy to print. Whether you are using digital printing, thermal transfer or silk-screen printing, the final prints on the material always turn out exactly as they appear in the original file. If you like your umbrellas to have your custom logos, pongee should be your first choice.

This also makes pongee the best choice for designing promotional or advertisement umbrellas. Pongee fabric material for designing umbrellas should be of high density, preferably 190t and upwards. Nylon and polyester are the next closest alternatives to pongee and sometimes used for designing cost-effective umbrellas, but these might, however, last long.

Advantages of Pongee over nylon
Pongee and Nylon are very similar fabric materials, and both are used to manufacture various products such as bags, umbrellas, dresses. And also used as linings with different kinds of garments. Due to this similarity, these materials are sometimes interchanged in their uses. However, as you’ve seen in the examples of umbrellas above, Pongee comes out as the most superior alternative to the likes of nylon and polyester as it offers high-grade quality.
Pongee is inherently stronger, tougher and denser compared to nylon and polyester. Since pongee is a finer thread, manufacturers are able to weave with a higher thread count giving a strengthened final product. Here is a quick look at other advantages of pongee you should know about.


Advantages of Pongee fabric

• Abrasion resistant and Very durable

• Resists shrinking and stretching

• Waterproof and dries quickly

• Mildew and mould resistant

• Easy to clean, you may dry cleaned it

• Holds colour well and resists fading

• Recyclable

Nylon and polyester, on the other hand, fade easily in sunlight, have an overly shiny appearance.  May sometimes generate static electricity and are environmentally unfriendly since they are not easily recyclable.  Now pongee fabric comes out as a superior option for a wide range of application.
