The Incognito Umbrella Lets You Maintain Your Modesty in the Rain

The Incognito Umbrella is a new umbrella designed by Tamara Barrage to help Muslim women lose the tops of their burqas while still maintaining modesty. The Incognito Umbrella is designed to work just like a burqa, providing the wearer a window to the world while keeping unwanted eyes blocked out.

The Incognito Umbrella was is made out of cloth and has floral and geometric patterns inspired by Muslim art. My only knock against this otherwise awesome design is that it isn't waterproof. I understand that most women who wear burqas probably live in the Middle East, where rain is scarce, but what about the rest of the women around the world who have to deal with rain more than once every five years?
