I had so much fun at the NAPO 2012 Conference meeting vendors and learning about all sorts of new products. But one of the funniest and most unlikely stories is how I met Clare Kumar the owner and creator of Pliio folding management system. We met at a reception the night after the conference was officially over, we started talking and I ended up in her room where she introduced me to Pliio.
Above is a picture of Clare and I showing off her Pliio system. Look how tired poor Clare and I look. We were exhausted it was about 10:30 at night when this picture was taken.
So what is Pliio? Pliio is a way to easily fold and store you clothing so that all the clothing is the same size and will fit easily into a drawer or on shelves. Here’s how it works. Above you can see a picture of a dress with the pliio lying flat on the dress. This is step #1.
Step #2 is folding the sides of the clothes over (in this case the right and left hand side of the dress). See picture above.
Step #3 is folding over the top and bottom of the dress. When you have finished this step you clothes should be about the same side of the Pliio folding board.
Step #4 you simply fold the two short ends of the Pliio with your clothes on it inward like a little book. And you’re done! Just like the picture above.
Repeat and you will have your own beautiful box of folded clothes! I think the Pliio is so easy my kids can even us it!
When I walked in her room the first thing I saw was her suitcase pictured above. Yes, that really is her suitcase with the Pliio system fully being utilized!
Currently, the Pliio is only available from the Home Shopping Network (HSN). STAY tuned Clare gave me a set of the Pliio system to give away to one lucky blog reader. Watch for the official announcement coming in the next few days!
So what do you think about the Pliio? How would you use it? For travel, for your kids, your husband, yourself?
