Borne out of a disdain towards hot prickly weather, the Weather Dance Club started life as what we would imagine were required to participate in a rain dance. We made a lightning bolt, danced in the balcony with it, and rain arrived. Emboldened, we went on to make clouds and raindrops. And because we sometimes want to dry our laundry, we made a sun as well.
THE LIGHTNING BUDDIES
There are seven of them for our first launch.
In February 2013, three more lightning buddies joined the club.
Zappi is a mini lightning buddy. We will be making more of those soon!
MAKING THE BOLTS
Every one of our lightning bolts is 100% handcrafted. Each is sewn from fabrics hand-painted by us – so each one is one-of-a-kind! We embroidered the HEY KUMO cloud on the bolts, puffed (and puffed and puffed) them up, and finally finished them by hand.
