Our plant pot Kipo aims to emphasize our philosophy of use only locally sourced and sustainable materials to solve the unknown problems of our daily lives. With Kipo’s double potting system, drainage water is no longer a problem as the water falls through the soil, feeding the roots and lands into the second pot where it is stored. There, the water will be fed back into the plant through an old-fashioned wick system. This prevents root rot and increases the watering intervals.

Kipo is our first product to go through the production and sales process and truly emphasizes Sublime's design philosophies—it's elegant, minimalistic and functional. Kipo is a unique take on an indoor plant pot, and with its double potting system, it eliminates the need for a drip tray yet allows for a healthy drainage system.
The excess water that is fed through the soil and roots drips into the secondary pot where the water is stored. The stored water is then simply drawn back into the soil through a piece of string, also known as a wick. This system allows water to be reused and keeps the plant healthy for a longer period of time. It also prevents root rot—where water sits at the bottom of the soil and becomes stagnant—as well as increasing the intervals at which watering needs to occur.
Kipo is handmade and manufactured in the Cape Town area. The ceramic is slip cast out of white stoneware glaze, stronger than the typical earthenware clay most pots are made of. It is then coated in a white matte glaze and secured by an electro polished, stainless steel wire frame. The product comes in two variations—a wall mounted frame and a freestanding frame.
