Es ist euch sicher mittlerweile langweilig schon wieder was über Schirmtaschen zu lesen. Deshalb schreibe ich das ganze jetzt mal in englisch (und hoffe auf eine weitere Verbreitung).
During my stay in Lisbon I saw a lot of "dead" umbrellas in the street.
Here is now my newest item:
I filled it for the photo with a large filing box; the size is 46 cm high and 37 cm across. The handles are long enough to take them over your shoulder.
I embellished it with a little handmade-sign and of course my logo.
But the best is that you can wrap it up and close it with the umbrella-strap. Then it is so small it fits into the handbag or even trouser pocket.
Since I didn't have a cigarette box nor matchbox, I used a Fisherman's Friend tin for size comparison.
And just to prove that all my bags are from "dead" umbrellas, each bag gets a label with the photos, date and place of the found items.
