The craft-buying public is eating up Colleen Jordan’s tiny ecological fashion accessories: wearable planters that are made on a 3D printer. A notice on the Atlanta designer’s web site states that she’s backed up a week or two on orders.
It’s easy to see why. The phrase “aggressively cute” seems apt. The tiny planters carry around little succulents or flower arrangements. Jordan states on her biography that she wants to make the world a happier place by having more people carry a plant closer to their heart. The designs can be worn like a pendant necklace, on a pin or on the handlebars of one’s bicycle. They’re flat on the bottom so you can take the plant with you and keep it on a desk.
This Is Colossal states that the designs are printed out of nylon and dyed individually. They’re sealed with acrylic to protect the vessel from the rain. Jordan states on her web site that 3D printing has the added benefit of keeping her business’ ecological footprint low.
The vessels can be found on Jordan’s web site or her Etsy page.
