As a child, I was in love with a rope plant hanger that my grandma had hanging in the corner of her living room. Recently, she told me I could have it but..... it is made out of brown hemp, with funky beads, and it would just look out of place in my home. That's when we decided to create a new plant hanger out of a clean, white cotton rope that would make a modern statement in my home. We have even stepped it up a notch by adding delicate glass ornament hangers to aide in your own hanging garden.
GLASS ORNAMENT HANGERS
The glass ornaments create a beautiful effect in your home, outdoors, and at events such as weddings or dinner parties. They are made out of crystal so be sure they are securely hung to prevent breaking. The delicate glass is enough to catch your eye without being overbearing. You can create many different looks inside the ornaments such as an urban desert using succulents, a rainforest using water and live flowers, or for an elegant evening, put crystals and candles inside.

COTTON ROPE HANGERS
We love the cotton rope not just because of the look, but because it's a natural and safe fiber that is disposable and earth friendly. But to be honest, it is mostly for the look. All other rope hangers, like polyester and hemp, look cheap. Cotton rope is soft and easy to handle. It's also an easy material to dye. We want to expand into colored rope plant hangers. How awesome would a mint or coral rope hanger look?!
They can hold all kinds of pots, no matter the shape or size.
Reward #8/9 - 'Simple' Cotton Rope Hanger - 40" - $25 - shipping of $5 included.
Reward #10/12 - 'Braided' Cotton Rope Hanger - 60" - $35 - shipping of $5 included.
Reward #13 - One Simple 40" and one Braided 60" Cotton Rope plant hangers - $50 - shipping of $10 included.
We want to bring to you an affordable and adorable way to display your plants. Cotton rope is kind of pricey and it takes a long time just to make one rope hanger. We want to bring it to manufacturing to bring the price down and to be able to mass produce quickly.
Instead of setting a pot of flowers on your window seal, do something unique and hang them from your ceiling. These two products create the perfect look for a hanging garden.They are also space efficient for urban living.

SHARE THE LOVE
We want to get our product to as many people as possible and we need your help. If you like this project please share it on facebook, instagram, twitter, pinterest, ect. We appreciate all of your support!
We were both born and raised in Utah and married Oregon brothers who happened to be entrepreneurs. With our husbands owning a successful start up business, they gave us the support and encouragement to do something ourselves. We both have a love for nature and wanted to have a cool way to display plants and flowers in our homes and outside on our patios. Our goal is to bring you a website that is a one stop shop for all your hanging garden needs and possibly expand into retail stores near you.
Risks and challenges
After months of tweaking and making adjustments to our products, we are ready to bring them to the market. Our biggest issue moving forward is estimating the production time. We have lots of experience with working with manufacturers over seas, but we don't know the exact amount of product we will be ordering. Our goal of $4,000 gives us the minimum quantity we need to make this happen. If we exceed this goal, it could add up to longer production time. As of now we have around 30 days to produce the items, inspect them, and then have them shipped to the US.
