Postcard 21: Kokedama

Kokedama, which literally translates as “moss ball”, is a Japanese gardening technique where a plant’s root system is surrounded in a mud cake  and wrapped in moss before it is wound in string and hung from the ceiling. These hanging or string gardens are a DIY project that both my cousin Grace and I want to try.  So for her birthday I wanted to provide her with some visual inspiration.


Opus Studio is a Cape Town-based shop that specialises in creating beautiful hanging gardens. I found these images of the Opus Studio space via the lovely Mariah of a Size Too Small.
