The Story

One rainy windy day in New York City,

Alan Kaufman, Founder & Inventor, was sitting in a café. He began to take notice of people juggling with their umbrellas while attempting to use their tech devices, while workers were left completely exposed to the elements…. which sparked an idea. He envisioned what a 21st century alternative weather protection device could look like. He thought why not wear it instead of holding it. He sketched it – and Nubrella was born! From there, Alan worked with several leading product design and engineering firms to bring his vision to life.

Nubrella has rebranded and is now called Canope. We did this because we are not a traditional umbrella and our huge value proposition of providing revolutionary new sun protection. Umbrellas are not typically known for sun protection although many uncomfortably hold one for lack of any other viable option.

We are on a mission. Our goal is to position Canope as the ‘second’ weather protection device along with the traditional hand-held umbrella. As the umbrella is known for holding, Canope will known for wearing.

We currently boast tens of thousands of very satisfied customers in over 70 countries.

So, we invite you to go Hands-Free and enjoy working or playing outdoors.

Today, Nubrella boasts thousands of very satisfied customers in over 70 countries who use Nubrella for both rain & sun protection and for work & recreation.

The world's first patented hands-free, wind-resistant umbrella!
