“Plants share very similar birth and growth process to humans, but we do not appreciate much of what they give us.” – Alice Kim
Alice Kim, a design student graduate of Kingston, designed a pregnancy pouch to carry plants similar to a human fetus in utero .
Kim’s design challenges people to sport a clear plastic bag with a plant inside and to look after the seedlings with the same care that you would a baby.
Kim says she was inspired to create the wearable vest to encourage people to give plants the same care that we give other living things. By wearing the plant on your person, Kim believes it will remind the wearer of the care that a plant requires to flourish.
After the seedling has outgrown the pouch, Kim has invented a plant stroller to take it for walk.
As someone who has trouble keeping anything with roots alive, I’m oddly intrigued. (Shout out to our air fern- the only plant that hasn’t died on my watch.)
