At the push of a button, Marisol bursts into action, opening hearts and minds to the vision of a peaceful world where women are safe and free. The Marisol® umbrella protects women not only from rain and sun, but from violence and war. Twenty percent of net profits are donated to survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Handcrafted by women in Brooklyn, New York, using old-world techniques taught by master artisan Gilbert Center. A single Marisol umbrella takes two hours to make, lasts a lifetime and comes in extremely limited editions to convey the idea that each woman is unique, valuable to her society, and has a right to be treated with dignity and love.
