The PoPots® products consist in an innovative line of baskets or containers made of a manageable and durable rubber material which provides a long lasting product with multiple uses and applications. The product line has two (2) initial models in four (4) sizes and a variety of colors. The product PoPots® will have a personalization option by the use of a distinctive object called PoTees®, which is a silicon charm with shapes and messages that will function as an a enclosure card.

Los productos PoPots® consiste en una innovadora línea de canastas o envases hechos de un material de goma manejable y duradero que proporciona un producto de larga duración para múltiples usos y aplicaciones. Inicialmente nuestra línea de productos cuenta con dos (2) modelos, en cuatro (4) tamaños y en una variedad de colores. Los productos PoPots® cuentan con la opción para personalizarlos al insertar distintivos accesorios de plástico con diferentes mensajes, temas y motivos, estos accesorios son de nombre PoTees®, los accesorios con mensajes pueden hacer la función de una tarjeta de regalo.

PoPots® baskets/containers are made with EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) rubber. Will be available in 4 sizes initially; small, regular, medium, and large. PoPots® have a flexible and strong build while keeping a light weight foam properties which makes them very safe and durable. PoPots® baskets/containers are suitable to keep any kind of products or objects inside them for gifts, decoration or storage. They're waterproof, washable and stain resistant. The exterior have a textured finish which enhances the design details. If we reach our kick starter basic goal we will build the four sizes in the 4 colors you can see below.

Las canastas o envases PoPots® están fabricados con material de goma EVA (Acetato de Vinilo Etílico). Estará disponible en 4 tamaños inicialmente; pequeñas, regulares, medianas y grandes. PoPots® tiene una construcción flexible y fuerte, manteniendo propiedades de un material liviano en peso y de goma que los hace muy seguros y duraderos. Los PoPots® canastas o envases son adecuados para mantener cualquier tipo de productos u objetos dentro de ellos como para obsequios, la decoración o el almacenamiento. Son impermeables, lavables y resistentes a las manchas. El exterior tiene un acabado en su textura que distingue los detalles del diseño. Si logramos nuestra meta inicial podremos manufacturar los cuatro tamaños y en los 4 colores que puedes ver a continuación.

PoPots® baskets /containers have holes on opposite sides of the basket where charms or pins can be inserted. Our pins or accessories are called PoTees®. They are made in different designs, themes and/or have messages to accessorize or customize the PoPots® basket/container.

Las canastas o envases PoPots® tienen agujeros a cada lado opuesto de la canasta donde los accesorios o botones pueden insertarse. Estos botones o accesorios PoTees® están disponibles con diferentes diseños, temas y/o mensajes para personalizar o añadir un accesorio a tu canasta o envase PoPots®.

PoTees® are accessories to personalize or customize your PoPots®. Po -Tees are like T-shirts for your PoPots®.  They are made of silicon and we created several messages and themes for every occasion. 

PoTees® son accesorios para resaltar o personalizar tus envases y canastas PoPots®. Po-“Tees”, “tees” de “tshirt”, como las camisetas para tus envases PoPots®. Están hechos de plástico, con varios diseños, temas o mensajes para cada ocasión.

Important Note: PoTees® accesories are not intended to be a toy for small children, they are for decoration only. They got small parts so they shall not be left unattended with small children.

For the PoTees® to be attached to the PoPots® baskets/containers we used friction fit technology. We created a patent pending system that is easy to attach and remove and stay in place as long as you desire.We designed a button that is attached to the PoTees® and when inserted into the PoPots® hole, the elasticity of the EVA material off the PoPots® holds the inserted PoTees® in place. Any PoTees® can be inserted and removed as many time as you desire.

Para que los PoTees ® queden insertados en las canastas o envases PoPots® utilizamos un sistema de fricción de ajuste. Hemos creado un sistema, con patente pendiente, que es fácil de poner y quitar y permanecer en el lugar todo el tiempo que desee. Hemos diseñado un botón que se adjunta a los PoTees® cuando se inserta en los agujeros de PoPots®, la elasticidad del material de goma EVA de los PoPots® hace que se mantenga el accesorio PoTees® insertado en su lugar. Cualquier PoTees® se pueden insertar y extraer en cualquier momento que desee.

With our experience in the gift industry we found the necessity to create a new generation of baskets designs combining the usefulness of a basket and the fun of adding color and new durable and safe materials, we also added a way to personalize each basket with fun silicone pins like an enclose card.

Three years ago, with the first prototype iteration of a plastic color baskets with gifts cards charms we started the design process. Through this organic learning process, design improvements have been a constant consideration since the first baskets launched. After many CAD drawings and prototypes, we've developed the best design possible for the next generation of baskets. We're confident it's ready for production and with the feedback we received from many people, we know it's ready for you!

PoPots® baskets are manufactured with EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) a thermoplastic polymer material which is recyclable. PoPots® are manufactured by injection moulding process using EVA pellets as raw material.

EVA is popular material for its elastic and light weight characteristics and it is known as expanded rubber or foam rubber. EVA foam is used as padding in equipment for various sports such as ski boots, bicycle saddles, hockey pads, boxing and mixed martial arts gloves and helmets, wakeboard boots, water-ski boots, fishing rods and fishing reel handles. It is typically used as a shock absorber in sports shoes, for example. EVA slippers and sandals are currently very popular because of their properties like light weight, easy to mold, glossy finish, and similar to natural rubber.

Each PoPots® piece started from a series of hand-drawn sketches. We found inspiration in the latest gift products on the market today and were also heavily influenced by modern design. We focused on simple lines and a clean, modern look that is now the core of PoPots brand.

Risks and challenges

The manufacturing process usually presents the greatest challenge when developing a new product. We have already built our first 3D printed models and rubber prototypes . Our mould and product manufacturers are ready to start building products. During the campaign we will continue working on the logistics in order to minimize any delays that may occur. The funds gathered on Kickstarter will cover the tooling costs for the molds needed to make these variety of designs and sizes. We will be upfront with all backers, ensuring they're informed about their delivery during the manufacturing process.
