3 questions to…Sjoerd van Dijk

In 2018, the Insights-X introduces the NewcomerArea for the first time. This area is organised by Spielwarenmesse eG and promotes young innovative companies from Germany and abroad at Insights-X. One of these companies will be BLOOM your message.

BLOOM your message is a company of three friends and produces growing and sustainable products that should give people a smile! The company from Schiedam in the Netherlands was founded in 2013, and celebrated their fifth anniversary this May. We talked to Sjoerd van Dijk, one of the founders.

What products will you present at Insights-X 2018?

Our growing cards are made of seed paper: sustainable cotton paper or recycled paper with seeds inside. Under the soil this paper will grow out into a bunch of blooming flowers, herbs or tasteful vegetables. Our growing cards are available in two sorts of seed paper and 30 different designs.

We also show sprout growing pencils. They have been given its dual function by replacing the eraser with a special seed capsule. Delicious fresh herbs, crispy vegetables or flowers, grow out of the pencil. The sprout pencils are made of sustainable wood and filling.

What can visitors expect from you?

A warm welcome in our stand. We love talking about all our products that can grow out in wonderfull  flowers, herbs and vegetables. We are looking forward to have great conversations with people from all over Europe and to find a lot of new contacts. And of course several new shops that are enthusiastic about our products and company!
