About USU

Who's behind the Whispers brand?

Under Stella’s Umbrella (USU) does not sell umbrellas – it is a corporate umbrella for all its brands – which means, "for all the things Stella thinks up"! Stella’s mind has a tendency to wander and create products in a wide range of categories – hence the need for a corporate umbrella to "rein" her in and encompass them all. It is only fitting that they have an umbrella to do so, since the first items Stella ever sold in the gift industry were hand painted canvas & bamboo umbrellas over 20 years ago.
