Flexible Flowerpot / Flowerpot

Flexible Flowerpot

Being as voluminous and heavy as they are, flowerpots are troublesome things to transport in bulk. Their shape and weight makes it difficult to achieve efficiencies in transportation. Flexible flowerpot is a collapsible vessel that addresses this issue. It can be transported flat and converted into its vessel shape only when it needs to be used. It is made with soft and hard components. The hard elements, which create the support structure, are biodegradable organic materials. The soft ‘envelope’ is made with waterproof cloth. An internal drawstring allows the pot shape to be formed.
