Pop Up Pot

Featuring landscape watercolour artworks inspired by significant Australian locations, a Mountain or Beach Pop Up Pot is a perfect gift to send to loved ones overseas or a souvenir to take home to serve as a reminder of your trip down under.

A Pop Up Pot is an origami-style plant pot that comes flat and assembles with a quick pop and a push. They’re designed and made in Australia from 100% recycled and carbon neutral polypropylene that is both flexible and lightweight, making it a safe souvenir to pack in your luggage or an affordable gift to send in the mail. Simply insert it into a C5 envelope and post it anywhere in the world for the cost of a letter.

Beach Pop Up Pot features artwork inspired by Victoria’s dramatic coastline of rugged cliffs, golden sands, picturesque beaches, and islands. Mountain Pop Up Pot is inspired by the Glass House Mountains on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland – a spiritually significant place for Australia’s First Nations Peoples. Thousands of years ago, this area provided a varied and rich environment of river systems, forests and coastal wetlands that allowed First Nations Peoples to gather for ceremonies and trading.
