It’s the canopy that gets your first sight, and then the first touch with handle. There are also many choices for handle part, giving customer different feeling.
1# Handle Material:
PLASTIC is the most frequently used material for handle. Due to its plasticity, it’s easy to make different shapes for customer’s choice. Moreover, the expense and strength are also highly accepted by market.
The plastic could also be very different, like the best one ABS, to regular PP, and cheap second-time plastic. There is no best material, but most suitable one.
WOOD is also welcome for a classic handle with a real touch to nature. Like wood furniture, different woods are used with different quality and expense. Cheap laminate wood handles are more used for chain market and promotion items, while solid wood is loved by brand customers.
There are also EVA FOAM/EP/PU/ALUMINUM material needed by different customer, but not so popular in the market.
2# Handle Shape:
During my past 11-yeasrs experience in umbrella world, I have dealt with more than 150 handle shapes, and twice more for what I have seen. To find a right supplier with more handle shapes is a wise choice for your program. Because a nice matching for handle and canopy will help you make more selling.

Moreover, a new mould could also be made according to customer’s unique design, if the mould charge is accepted.
3# Handle Coating:
Rubber Finishing: rubber finishing is usually put on plastic handle. This finishing provides a matt and luxury outlooking, and excellent soft touching.
But the rubber finishing may become sticky after one or two years’ use, especially in hot and wet condition. So a new finishing, PU coating, is more selected now. The PU coating is also matt looking, while the touching is less soft, but it keeps good performance for a really long time.
Pearl-shinning finishing: this kind of finishing are more used for lady and girl umbrella, making the handle shiny like diamond and star.
4# Special Handle:
There are also some special handles with different functions, like the car-safe handle below. There is one handle knife for cutting the locked seatbelt, and also hammer to break the window in emergency.
