The Vegetabrella: Romaine for When it Rains
Wise men from Bing Crosby to Perry Como to Agent Gordon Cole have advised letting a smile be your umbrella. Well the maker’s of this week’s ultimate popject have other ideas. When it rains, grab some romaine. Presenting: The Vegetabrella.
The Vegetabrella was designed by Yurie Mano of Tokyo Noble. It’s a fully functional umbrella in the form of a head of lettuce. From the crinkly effect of the green polyester to the blue barcoded tie, it’s pure popject perfection.
Such vegetarian rainy day fun comes at a price. The Vegetabrella is available outside of Japan for ~ $60 USD here.

I’d like to take this opportunity to issue a warning to those of you readers who are superstitious people. If you open The Vegetabrella over your head while indoors, you will turn into Bruce McCulloch of Kids in the Hall.
As someone who dislikes umbrellas (they feel so awkward), I’d sport this. I wish the price tag was halved. Doesn’t the designer realize lettuce is super cheap?!
Brilliant! Kudos on tying all these ideas together 😀
@crazylikeafox11 @Kristin Thanks you two! I tend to agree with the idea that I’d rather wear a wet hoodie than hold an umbrella, but my love for the lettuce runs deep. Not quite $60 deep, but Bruce McCulloch is really selling it for me…
