Have had this for nearly 10 years nowTERELL V.This has held up nicely. I bought this a long time ago, i believe nearly 10 years ago. Perfect for small spaces. I strung the ikea battery operated led lights around the edges. It looks so nice. Wish i could post a pic5

I love it!!!MonikaI love it!!!5
It’s ok.In W.Our came with a large mysterious spot of rust on the pole? Too far to ikea to return/exchange. The wind knocked it over and just falling over once caused holes in the canopy fabric. That was also disappointing. All in all, it’s a vey attractive design but gets dirty easily and can’t be cleaned because the ribs are sewn into the frame (which does make it stronger). So, I wish it were a better color and more resilient fabric. For the price it’s pretty good, but be extra careful with it.4
Bought twoCindyDefinitely worth what I paid. Ended up going back to buy another one.5
Almost Perfect!Lynnie CI bought this for my small table on my small deck, and the size and color are perfect! I love that it tilts, and was a little concerned about it not having a crank, but actually prefer just opening and closing by hand! Works SO smoothly! The only minus is that my deck is very windy, and the umbrella doesn’t have a hole up top to deflect some of the wind, so it catches every breeze and wobbles about in the breeze. So I can’t have it open as much as I’d like. But I think it’s a great little thing!4
TanTanDislikerI’m sure it’s a fine umbrella but it’s way more tan than it looks in the pictures.3
Great patio umbrella!!Pati Vargas EntSamso umbrella is a great product for the price, highly recommend!5
Best Umbrella for the money!Pj03This umbrella we bought about a month ago to replace the same umbrella we bought over 10 years ago. It held up very well and for the money you can't find a better deal!5
doesn't stay upbapple30We had Ikea umbrella's for years (in fact we had 2 for 10 years).. Had to buy this one bc the $89 was sold out. Big bummer- never stays up- sitting and eating and it closes on me- will be returning. I ordered another brand from amazon bc Ikea online & call center is so difficult - i cannot be bothered1
Love this umbrella!JenihonuI bought this umbrella in July 2018 and it was the best value. This umbrella was only $29 and it is bigger than I expected it to be for that low pricepoint. Made of sturdy canvas and strong materials...gives lots of shade!5
Very good qualitysam3It is perfect for my patio, because of the size. and the color. So happy I bought it4

Pretty small, low qualityMCCdVery small and low quality, had to return1
Great Umbrella!Cactus KathyWe are so happy with this purchase. Sturdy, large coverage, fabulous price.5
Can not beat the price/quality ratiokailiuCan not believe this is only $29. I would be happy to pay around $40-50. Good looking and color. 6.5 feet diameter. Good for small patio table. Glad it has the tilt feature. Not the sturdy one. If it is very windy. I am afraid it will be broken.5
Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Virgin vs recycled polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Some challenges with recycled polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.
Only recycled polyester
IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.
At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is steel?
Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
