New Zealand’s Blunt Umbrellas, known for its sell-out limited editions, has joined forces with celebrated New Zealand artist, Flox, to release this season’s must-have, limited-edition artist’s series umbrella in support of Oxfam New Zealand’s ground-breaking climate change and sustainability programmes in the Pacific.
For every ‘Flox’ umbrella sold, Blunt will donate $30 to Oxfam New Zealand to support transformational, sustainable crop growing programmes in Pacific nations.
“At Blunt, we’re inspired by taking a lifetime view of things. The idea behind the ‘Flox for Blunt’ umbrella was to bring art and nature to life, while also raising awareness for an important cause,” says Scott Kington, Blunt Umbrellas co-founder.
Two Flox designs will be printed on Blunt’s most popular Classic and Metro styles and to celebrate the collaboration, a ‘Flox for Blunt’ mural has been completed on York Street in Newmarket.
“It was great to secretly introduce the Flox umbrella design during Auckland Art Week in October. The excitement around it was incredible so I can’t wait to see how the umbrellas are received,” says Flox.
Just 3000 of the Flox for Blunt umbrellas are available.
