Am I dreaming? I have always wanted an umbrella that looked like a head of lettuce. Hasn’t everyone? And now, via the Japanese design blog Spoon & Tamago, it’s here. You’ll have to order the Vegetabrella from Japan for 4,725 yen (about $60), but that’s a small inconvenience to be the first in your neighborhood (should it ever rain again) to shelter from the rain in such a nifty manner.
Closed, it really does look like a fresh head of Romaine. Designed by Yurie Mano for H Concept and manufactured by the family-owned Tokyo Noble, it has a clever closure that looks like a produce band and stays slightly crinkled when unfolded and in use.
