String Gardens


While most people choose to display their plants in pots or vases, Dutch designer Fedor van der Valk has designed a series of self-supporting hanging plant containers.

Reminiscent of the Japanese botanical style and kokedama – planted, moss covered balls - Van der Valk uses a specific crocheting stitch to create the spherical-shaped frames. The spheres are then filled with different types of moss and grass to help retain the shape.
