Few inventions become world-famous brands, but Knirps®, famed for the umbrella that is extremely small but expands to full size when required, is one of them.
Knirps® 80 years history is due to its consistent branding, outstanding quality and constant innovations. Like many major brands, the story of Knirps® began with a revolution. In 1928 the engineer Hans Haupt invented the first telescopic pocket umbrella, the Knirps® brand was modernised in the mid 1950´s, and the unique Red Dot symbol was added, which became established worldwide, and which remains unmistakable to this day.
A rainy day with Knirps® will continue to be an unforgettable experience. Knirps® – the original.
