About The Parasolerie Heurtault
Located in the heart of Paris, the Parasolerie Heurtault is a unique place, where materials are transformed and shaped into magnificent parasols and umbrellas. The atelier is also where the techniques and know-how that Michel Heurtault has developed over the years are transmitted and shared with future generations. In this magical place, visitors discover how textiles and materials are tailored, stitched, cut and altered to create incredibly complex objects.
Some of the cutting tools used at the workshop are more than 200 years-old, enabling us to achieve the incomparable aspect of French haute couture. The art of Michel Heurtault’s work is in the detail of the components: the soft and solid steel of the ribs, the softness of the linen, cotton and silk, the sensuality of the woods. The umbrellas and parasols created in the Parasolerie are unique works of art.
