Remember those pencils with erasers affixed at the top end? How about pens and pencils that come with plantable seeds at the end ? Pretty cool, right ? Posa India started by Akansha deals with that along with bamboo products, toiletries and coconut tableware. All of these are made to order. Based out of Raipur, Chhattisgarh, Posa India’s Bamboo and Neemwood products are sourced locally and made by the artisans there. Everything at Posa India is made from the land, by hand and goes back to the land.
Posa India’s Coconut Crockery range is a homerun. Their wine cups, and bowls are made from discarded coconut shells. They are first sanded and then polished with extra virgin coconut oil. Without any use of lamination or polishing, the tableware is made from tools the localites have and are completely food safe. What intrigued us most was the brand’s plantable pens and pencils that have an acrylic compost pit (a shell) at the tip containing seeds. Thing Brinjal, Tomato, Marigold, Basil, etc. After use, all you have to do is plant these pens at an angle of 30 degrees and water for 1-4 weeks after which the plants sprout.
For those of you having hair fall problems, try out the brand’s Neemwood comb that due its zero plastic content and anti-friction quality, reduces hair fall and also prohibits transfer of oil from scalp to hair. Posa India’s price’s range from INR 40 - INR 1,000 and orders can be placed through social media from anywhere within India.
