How Poketo shares the same ideology of a sustainable lifestyle with Urbanana

Based in the United States, Poketo was founded in 2003 by husband-and-wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung. It has grown from a small start-up into a creative hub and online destination. A lifestyle brand born out of the desire to infuse art and design into every day, Poketo creates collections of design-conscious goods to cultivate a creative lifestyle. The name Poketo (pronounced “poh-keh-toe”) stems from the mispronunciation of “pocket” by Angie’s grandmother. It tied in perfectly with the first product ever created under Poketo: a series of artist wallets that fit right in your pocket—and Ted and Angie just loved the way it sounded.

In our collection you will find how Poketo has incorporated sustainability into design. Their bamboo plates are made from certified organic bamboo fibre and corn starch. Durable with a smooth, modern look, they are great alternatives to styrofoam plates and can be used over and over for your favourite moments of the day, demonstrating a perfect balance of design, practicality and sustainability. Another example is the notebooks which are made of environmentally friendly tree-free paper, with a durable, fabric-like cover.

Poketo shares the same ideology of a sustainable lifestyle with Urbanana. We believe good design can always be created without compromising our environment.
