      What a fantastic Company & Team. So helpful, the service was amazing! They had the classic black & white canvas I was after and my job turned out beautifully thanks to them. Great to see a local company doing it all in house in Australia with 100% quality. Highest recommendation.

      I purchased an Awnet umbrella after many failed cheaper models and this is vastly superior! Very well made and rock solid. I love that it is Australian made. The service and delivery were great, and the installation was very easy. Well worth it! It will save you in the long run.

      Aussie owned and Aussie made... loved meeting the team and working with them to find my ideal solution. They said it would be done in 4 weeks but finished it in 2 and it was a pleasant experience all the way through.
      Umbrellas that actually last!
