Ebrahim Currim & Sons – 155 Years Old Umbrella Shop

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. The 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 is Rs. 800 for an umbrella with 6 month’s warranty. Umbrella for kids is also there.

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

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