Artful Green’s twist on the Japanese Art form of Kokedama
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.
We create Kokí, Living Art, here in Ireland; using Coco fibre, the waste products from the coconut industry.This medium is sustainable, biodegradable, disease and mould resistant with the added benefit to you of being low maintenance.
Each living piece is lovingly created by Stephanie, using a sustainable soil mix for each plant's requirements.
Kokí, pronounced Ko-key, is a combination of Japanese inspiration, a reference to Coco fibre with an Irish twist (of course).
