Living walls are now a popular interior trend and rightfully so. Our clients love having greenery indoors, but not everyone had the right conditions to grow plants in their space or time/resources to take care of them. We hated saying no to our clients, so we found a comparable alternative to satisfy their green needs-- preserved moss walls!
Moss walls allow our clients to have a touch of nature without any of the maintenance. We are extremely picky about the quality of the mosses we use, so we source them from all over the world. They go through a process of glycerin preservation, so that the moss retains its color, texture, and overall vibrant appearance. They do not require any sunlight or water, and can keep up their soft, natural look for up to 10 years.
Soon we were getting requests for smaller projects and this is when we started making ‘preserved plant paintings’ for our Etsy page. Check out of what we’ve made so far!
