Restoration

Recovering the original beauty of an object that has been damaged or just faded with time, while respecting the choice of materials and using historical techniques.

 

The restoration of an umbrella or a parasol consists in giving it back its splendour by consolidating its components through different operations: relining or rebuilding embroidered silks, cottons and linens, reinforcing the original lace, rehabilitating or replacing handles and knobs, shafts and ribs.

 

The Parasolerie has a very large stock of spare parts, silks, laces and trimmings from all periods of time, allowing us to restore old parasols and umbrellas to their original aspect.

 

For smaller budgets, restorations can be made using contemporary materials, which come from the best suppliers.

Michel Heurtault works with specialized artisans (gilders, enamellers, scalers, engravers, turners and sculptors) to ensure that every umbrella and parasol is restored in accordance to the highest standards.

I received my parasol safely back from you on Thursday. I must thank Michel for his excellent workmanship in returning my parasol to its former glory. I am amazed how lovely it is. I also would like to thank you personaly for relaying the useful information about the history, which I intend to write down so it will always be known.
