Ebrahim Currim & Sons – 155 Years Old Umbrella Shop in Mumbai

Recently, during the Mumbai tour I was in need of an umbrella due to the arrival of rainy weather. But the question was: Where to buy umbrellas in Mumbai? Numerous replies, and I selected to visit Ebrahim Currim & Sons – since 1860 having the oldest recorded umbrella in the country.

How to reach?

I reached the shop via Marine Lines railway station.

East side > 20 meters approx. walk towards Churchgate till the Marine Lines flyover > turn left > 150 meters approx. straight walk to cross two red lights to reach Shamaldas Gandhi Marg also known as Princess Street. Left hand side is the shop with the big display board – Stag Umbrellas.

I purchased two umbrellas. One big umbrella for Rs. 500 and another small one for Rs. 300. No bargain. The price is fixed. The lowest price is Rs. 260/- and the highest Rs. 800 for an umbrella with 6 months warranty. Umbrella for kids is also there.

Timings: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm (during rainy season)

There are numerous umbrellas shops here at Shamaldas Gandhi Marg. Some are wholesalers and some are retailers, but a shop since 155 years – That is an achievement. Great find – said I. At the entrance of the shop it is written: 1860 (Bombay Madras Calicut).
