Um Guarda chuva,chamado ainda de Sombrinha.

Os mais antigos que se conhecem foram da Mesopotâmia, há 3400 anos.

Na mesopotâmia, região do atual Iraque, há 3400 anos já existiam artefatos destinados a proteger a cabeça dos reis - contra o sol, não contra a chuva, uma raridade naquele lugar

Assim como os abanos, eram feitos de folhas de palmeiras, plumas e papiro..

No Egito, adquiriram significado religioso e na Grécia e em Roma eram tidos como artigo
 exclusivamente feminino

Só no século XVIII a obstinação do comerciante inglês Jonas Hanway,

um apaixonado por guarda-chuvas ,versão inglesa do guarda-sol tropical, conseguiria torná-los
 dignos também de um gentleman

Embora ridicularizado em vida, após a sua morte, em 1786, os ingleses aceitaram sair à
rua munido do acessório nos sempre freqüentes dias de chuvas do país.
