Japan Unveils the Latest in Fashionable Raingear: The Vegetabrella
Combine an umbrella and lettuce, and what do you get? Tokyo Noble’s Vegetabrella!
… An umbrella that looks like a fresh head of a lettuce when closed.
The Vegetabrella adds color to Japan’s gloomy rainy season, all the while doing what it is made for: protecting people from the rain.
When rolled up, especially after use, others might really believe you’re carrying around a head of lettuce.
In the store where the Vegetabrella is sold, you can see these funky-looking umbrellas in custom-designed cardboard boxes, even stamped with their prices.
However, these heads of lettuce will cost you a hefty 4,725 yen (just under US$60). But that’s a small price to pay to keep your head dry.
