Where and how are the products of
Our products are composed with great care and love in the Netherlands. We work together with artisan and local makers and are closely involved in the production process.
Which materials are used
We work with natural materials that we select with the greatest care for durability and longevity. Our plants come directly from the grower, the glassware is recycled and the woodwork for the accessories is handmade by a Haarlem company.
What does the MPS label mean?
We work with the best growers in the Netherlands and Denmark with MPS certification. This is a quality mark in the field of sustainability. With this certificate, these growers meet requirements in areas such as traceability, the environment, crop protection products and recall procedures.

What does the DIY ecosystem consist of?
Our ecosystems are delivered as a complete Do It Yourself package. It contains everything you need and step-by-step instructions to get started. The content of the package consists of stones, soil, moss and the plant(s).

Nice that you are going to surprise someone with a
