Great things come in small packages. At about half a foot unopened, this small umbrella is easily kept in a purse, briefcase, backpack, or glove compartment so you're never caught uncovered in unexpected rain. Manually opening and closing, the canopy of this Marimekko umbrella stretches more than three feet in diameter.

This is my second Unikko Umbrella - my first Unikko Umbrella (automatic one) has been a work horse and I have had no problems for 4 years, so I decided to get another one to keep it in my purse. Mini is surprising tiny but opens pretty wide, seems durable as well. Overall I am happy with this purchase!
Handy, cute print, high quality - sturdy build.
Don't see any so far
NICE AND STRONG UMBRELLA!

I got this in the small manual black Marimekko Unikko. When the umbrella first arrived, it was very difficult for me to open it up. After a few tries, I finally got it open but it seemed stiff. I was going to send it back but decided to try opening and closing it a few times. I did this until the kinks were out and it works fine now. It opens up pretty big for a small umbrella and seems strong. I usually prefer a manuel umbrella as they last longer than the automatic ones. And I love Marimekko Unikko! I would recomend this to anyone who likes manual umbrella's but you have to have a strong arm to get it open!
Beautiful and strong!
A little difficult to open and close, but gets better with use!
