Kumo Design

Kumo is a brand designing creative umbrellas in which they see sensitive and fashion shelters to protect you from the rain and the monotony of a grey day. Mathilde and Paul had this idea to sublime this rain accessory while they were only seing sad and black ones on their paths.

Mathilde Fiessinger is a designer passionate by the object, the creation and the craft and has lived in Japan, Paul Frey is a photographer keen on image and aesthetic. They name their project Kumo, cloud in Japanese. Through this initiative, they aim at bringing a colorful and aesthetic nuance to the rainfalls while enhancing the drafts of the artists with who they collaborate. L’Encrerie, Frédérique Vernillet, Check Morris are some of those names who give free rain to their creativity on this daily object turned into a piece of expression. It is through the serigraphy, method that enables to get precise drafts and plenty of colours, that Paul and Mathilde promote the talent of every artist and tell with poetry “the life is not to wait out the storm, but it is to learn to dance in the rain.”
