Cerovečki Umbrellas – I’m only happy when it rains

Although Zagreb has a long history of craftsmanship, only a few family businesses managed to survive the presence of modern technologies. Those few that survived became sort of a trade mark of this town. One of the great examples is the family Cerovečki. With an unstoppable tradition over a century old, they have been producing umbrellas and sunshades, which became known for their quality and durability.

I discovered them on one occasion when I was searching for a unique souvenir for my friends from London. And what is a better present for a Londoner than a colorful umbrella! To those people who do not like to hold umbrellas, I would suggest this cool, modern and functional raincoat called Kaplja. Their store shares a space in the beautiful passage in Ilica Street, the longest street in Zagreb, and neighbors other interesting stores of local producers. One of their products is a must to take home as a souvenir. It is a replica of a recognizable Zagreb sight – the red Šestine umbrella, which used to be part of a traditional folk garment.

Along with a wide selection of exquisite ladies’ sun parasols and gents’ formal umbrellas, it will take you right back down history lane.
