Company Overview

Tradewinds (NZ) is a locally owned company specialising in umbrellas and outdoor products.

Umbrellas are primarily sourced from Tradewinds Parasol in Cape Town. Tradewinds is a brand name synonymous with good styling, consistency and reliability. In addition to the traditional wooden sun umbrella, the range has developed to include aluminium and cantilever products. Complementing the umbrellas is an extensive range of hammocks, and Cafe/Breeze barriers.

Used both locally and internationally for branding by multi-nationals, the Tradewinds Parasols has become an important outdoor media vehicle for communications campaigns.

Winner of the Nelson Mandela Merit Award for Export in 1998/99, Tradewinds found a niche in the high specification parasol market with its premier product, the Tradewinds Classic Parasol. This superior product is made from durable hardwoods, harvested from renewable resources. From early on, this classic range of hardwood sun umbrellas set the international industry standard.

Tradewinds sell direct from their warehouse/showroom at 172J Marua Rd, Ellerslie. Winter hours are weekdays only, but in summer extend to includes Saturdays from 10.00am to 3pm.
