We have developed a unique vertical stand with an adjustable telescopic pole in combination with special jute pots with a drainage system and water reservoir. Urban Planty represents one of the simplest accessories for urban gardening, it is resistant to weather conditions and more importantly, does not require much space.

Urban Baggie is a multi-purpose product that can be used as a part of the interior design, as a decorated gift for someone's birthday or simply to liven up your kitchen while cooking.

It was so unique that we were granted a design patent. The Baggie is made of double layered fabric, namely the weed stopper and jute that holds water for a longer period of time, thus giving more moisture to the soil as if it was regularly watered. The bottom of the Baggie is made of recycled polypropylene.

Urban Baggie can be used for herbs, flowers and vegetables. Moreover, orchids and a small number of fruits, such as strawberries, grow perfect in the Baggie as well.

There is a recurrent problem with existing plastic plant pots on the market in connection with watering, since water drains too fast and soil dries out, therefore extra care for the plants is needed. Moreover, especially in the case of indoor gardening, the water is leaking out of the bottom of the pots on the windowsill or floor, which is a rather unpleasant experience. With the Urban Baggie watering becomes more efficient, since it offers various watering methods. 

Firstly, by using automatic plant waterers; secondly, by filling the removable bottom reservoir with water and thirdly, thanks to jute’s natural fibers you can soak the whole Baggie into the water container and put it back on the stand.

The water reservoir has three functions, namely irrigation, attachment of the Baggie to the stand and holding water. So there is no need for the use of a saucer or a cachepot.

Before running this campaign, we have tried to find all possible solutions to ship Urban Planties worldwide as cheap as possible (especially to USA), but we hit a big obstacle using our state postal service due to the package dimensions. We did not give up and have decided to challenge the logistic issue by using a direct sea freight service and fill the entire 20'' container only for U.S. citizens. Since your help & support are so important to us, WE WILL DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE YOU SATISFIED.

We care about you!
We care about you!

We have just made our final improvements to Urban Baggie and have also finished the final prototype for the Urban Planty garden. Now we need your help to make three mold forms and start the production of the stand. They are required for the following parts of the stand:

Dimensions:     5.9 x 7.8 x 47.2 inch or 15 x 20 x 120 cm

Weight:             12.63 lbs or 5.73 kg

Risks and challenges

Due to high shipping costs to the USA via the Post of Slovenia, we were forced to choose a type of delivery that would be more backer-friendly and affordable. Sea freight is a very bold move, since it requires getting pledges mostly from the USA. Logistics have been thoroughly examined; therefore, we believe that we have established a business model for the US with which we will be able to solve this problem. We will certainly do our best to deliver the rewards to our most loyal backers on time, probably in the middle of April.

If we surpass our funding goal and raise $300,000 or more, orders will be produced and shipped out in the same order as the pledges were received (on a first come, first served basis). Before launching our project on Kickstarter, our production process was fully optimized and automated, with the exception of sewing. Sewing takes a considerable amount of time; however, we will solve any potential problem with hiring two additional seamstresses. Sewing machines and jute fabric cutting machines are owned by our business partner; therefore, major problems in this area are not expected.
