The idea for Seedboms came from Kabloom founder Darren Wilson. Darren’s journey began back in the early 2000s when he graduated with a degree in 3D design & craft. During his studies, he became increasingly more aware of the impending environmental crisis we were facing.
Darren simply couldn’t bring himself to design and make anything without purpose and environmentally conscious values. The plan? To design a product that reconnected people with nature, even in a small way. To get people outside and create nature and colour in their cities for the benefit of everyone.
It was also extremely important to design products that weren’t going to end up in a landfill someday. Something that wouldn’t leave anything behind i.e. recyclable, compostable and biodegradable parts. The product also had to be fun, affordable and a little divisive, hence the grenade shape.
However, the grenade is just the start of the story, as the shape begins to disappear into the soil the story continues with a second life, a rebirth through wildflowers.
And so (to cut a long story short) the idea of the Seedbom was born!
