Ever wondered how that elegant canopy shielding you from nature’s downpours was born? Join us as we dive into the rich tapestry of Popy Umbrellas, from its humble beginnings to becoming Kerala’s premium rainy-day companion.
Taking a Plunge into the Past
Before we embark on our Popy escapade, let’s take a brief detour. Umbrellas, those foldable canopies we can’t live without, weren’t always used for rain. Originally, they were sunshades in ancient civilizations. From Egypt to China, these handheld shelters have been a part of human life for over 4,000 years!
Coming closer home, the rich history of umbrellas in India can be traced back to the Vedic period, where they symbolized protection and royalty. But while umbrellas have been around for ages, Popy redefined their essence for Keralites.
Popy: More than Just a Name
Ah, Popy! Originally christened ‘Popular Umbrella Mart,’ this brand is synonymous with rainy escapades in Kerala. Founded by the visionary, K.C. Jacob, Popy embarked on a mission to revolutionize the way people viewed umbrellas – not just as a utility but as a style statement.
Popy’s Dance with the Rain
Life in Kerala is a monsoon-filled ballet, and Popy is the lead dancer! The brand understands Kerala’s pulse – its unpredictable rains and blazing sun. Whether you’re a college-goer waiting at a bus stand or an elite member attending a monsoon wedding, Popy is the trusty companion everyone reaches out for.
Imagine the scene: A writer, inspired by the rhythm of raindrops, sits on her veranda. As the skies open up, she clutches her Popy – not just to shield herself, but to soak in the ambiance. It’s in moments like these that the deep-rooted bond between Popy umbrellas, the Keralite weather, and its people truly shine.
