About Paloma Teppa

Born in Argentina, Paloma Teppa grew up surrounded by nature. She studied industrial design before founding Plant the Future, a nature-focused design studio, botanical art gallery and plant boutique. Using natural moss as her medium, which requires no water, Paloma creates unique plant arrangements and large-scale living art installations as part of her goal to bolster her customer’s relationship with nature.

Plant the Future also uses recycled materials in its planters and jewelry line packaging in order to inspire others to find creative ways to recycle. She is passionate about helping others reconnect with Mother Earth because of the joy and peace she feels when surrounded with nature.
