HEY KUMO’s Weather Dance Club

THE STORY

Hey Kumo's Weather Dance Club - Sun, Clouds and Rain!

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.

There are seven of them for our first launch.

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.
