Essence of Style - Blunt Umbrellas (Metro)
Essence of Style was created because the business owners Grant and Jacqui Sharpe were keen to provide giftware to Taranaki shoppers that were normally found in other regions. Essence of Style stock the famous Blunt umbrellas, perfect for walking commuters in Taranaki.
About Blunt and sustainability.
“Built to last: Sustainability isn't just a buzz word, it's part of our fabric and it's reflected through the way we design everything we do. The traditional umbrella is a mass-produced product built to fail. There are enough cheap umbrellas littering the streets and rubbish bins after rain, so we decided to do something about it - build umbrellas designed to last.
Repair, not replace: Blunt™ Umbrellas are designed to be fully repaired, giving us our 'Repair, not Replace' ethos. This means if something goes wrong, you won't have to throw away your umbrella. Rather we will fix it for you anywhere around the world to be as good as new. We back this up with a 2-year global manufacturer’s warranty.
Package it right: As in everything we do, our packaging has been designed with the consumer experience first and foremost. A large part of this experience is ensuring that our packaging keeps the environment front of mind, so we use sustainably sourced and fully recyclable carton boxes that are strong and sturdy enough to be re-used.”
Thanks to the Todd Energy Aquatic Centre, we have four family passes as prizes.
To be in to win, send us a picture of your whānau participating together in the challenge and a short message of what you are enjoying about the Challenge.
