meet the founder
loloplant was founded by lauren williams - a long island native, now living in brooklyn. after spending dozens of weekends collecting interesting cacti and obsessing over unique pottery, her apartment quickly filled with prickly friends. she started giving them as gifts to (human) friends who didn't want to deal with the whole process of buying soil, pottery, etc to put together a store bought cactus. turning hobby/obsession into possible new career, lauren created loloplant. working full time in the fashion industry, she decided to use loloplant as a respite from her daily life and as a way to ground herself after a rough day. lauren has a BFA degree in apparel design from the rhode island school of design. she applies her design education towards her aesthetic choices for loloplant, and her work experience towards the business side.
