Although umbrella might seem like a common, everyday item that has been there for ages, the very first working and folding umbrella was made only in 1969 by Bradford E. Phillips. After nearly 45 years, there is roughly thirty four million umbrellas sold each year in the USA alone, worth $349 million. As you can guess most of them are made in China. There are more than a thousand umbrella factories in Shangyu.
