Artful Green’s twist on the Japanese Art form of Kokedama
We create Kokí, Living Art, here in Ireland; we wrap the rootball of the plant in Coco fibre, the waste product from the coconut industry. This medium is sustainable, biodegradable, disease and mould resistant with the added benefit to you of being low maintenance
Benefits of a Kokí to you...
Because our Kokí are handmade and not mass produced we save you money, time and lessen the amount of plastic pots on our planet.
We do a Full health check on all of the plants we receive saving you the burden.
We plant your plant up a size, giving a unique fresh soil mix in the Kokí ensuring continued health. Most plants that arrive in nursery pots have already outgrown their pots, we save you money and time buying more soil and a new plastic pot too.
Kokí, pronounced Ko-key, is a combination of Japanese inspiration, a reference to Coco fibre with an Irish twist (of course).
Our creator Stephanie was inspired by the Japanese Art-form of Kokedama, meaning literally ‘moss ball’. In Japan the rootball of the plant is wrapped in sphagnum moss and then it’s usually covered over with a green moss and tied together with wire or string. Kokedama are usually displayed hanging in Japanese homes, as space is restricted and many living in the cities do not have gardens. A Kokedama, becomes their green oasis away from the chaotic busy city.
