I rode my bike to work in the rain today and it reminded me of these great umbrellas by Satoko Kobayashi of Pare Umbrella in Seattle. Pare umbrellas are unlike most on the market today. Instead of a standard solid, Pare focuses on pattern, details, and design. The umbrellas are also produced in limited editions. With each season comes a new selection of styles to choose from.
