Gabriela and Rodrigo Díaz Capt are both originally from Argentina and they came to the United States in 2001, they have two boys: Iván and Emiliano
The Idea came to Gabriela while she was folding up one of her outgrown toddler's little jeans.
"I have to do something with this..., it is so cute!"
She held the little jean and thrust some flowers in it.
With Rodrigo they start working on a design that would allow the jeans to stand properly and hold a plant at the same time. And that is how Graphic Designers Gabriela and her husband Rodrigo Díaz Capt created "The Dudes Pant Planters®".
As they became more experienced with the structures and materials, they were able to come up with many variations and different positions.
This allowed to combine endless possibilities making each of "The Dudes Pant Planters®" a unique and special piece with its own character.
The slogan "Made in the USA by Argentinian hands", it's an everyday reminder where they came from, and the love they feel for their new home.
"The Dudes" Pant-Planters®
Since Spring of 2004 "The Dudes Pant Planters®" have become "conversation pieces", bringing smiles and memories to those parents and grandparents
that see their little ones reflected on them.
For Iván and Emiliano (Gabriela's and Rodrigo's children),
"The Dudes are our ..." half-brothers and sisters" :)
THEY ARE MADE TO MAKE YOU SMILE
The Dudes make a wonderful, exclusive and unique gift.
They are crafted with recycled kids' clothing and shoes.
The legs are made with wood cutout
on the shape and the size of that particular "Dude".
The plant holders are plastic with a plate inside so your
"Dude" won't look like "it had an accident" :)
MORE IDEAS FOR "THE DUDES"
You may think... "no, I'm not good with plants"..., Well, they
don't have to be used exclusively as plant holders, they can be cookie or candy holders, or a pencil holders
or even a toilet roll paper holder for your bathroom!
Use your imagination, enjoy and have fun :)
