Our story
Welcome to the people’s poncho. Founded in 2016 we take our inspiration from China, where unperturbed by the rainy weather people hop from place to place under the protection of a simple lightweight poncho.
-
We decided to adopt this democratic, uniform way of doing things and developed a poncho that could suit the needs of people around the world.
-
After trying material after material, design after design and finally found something we could be proud of, something that would prepare you for any kind of rainy day of adventure.

Our mission
 
To provide 100% waterproof, affordable and practical and credible protection from the rain
-
Our brand
雨伞 means 'umbrella' and due to it's initial origin in China we wanted to keep the Chinese heritage. The 伞 in 'the people's poncho' means UMBRELLA and is shaped like an umbrella. Likewise 雨 has 4 rain drops in it and takes the meaning RAIN.
