Testimonials

Wow these look even better in person! Some of my succulents were dying, and I wanted to give them some new energy and repot them; they already look happier. The yin-yang planters are perfect for small plants, and the planters do have drainage.

I’ve already received so many compliments from my guests asking where I got them from. I love how they are handcrafted, which really makes this piece unique; you can definitely feel the labor of love!
On top of that, I received my planters within a week - so shipping is really fast. 
Will definitely be buying more!

SUCH a beautiful planter. You can absolutely see the care put into the quality and packaging. A lovely addition to my desert rustic home decor! Highly recommend for your plant babies!

These are such cute little planters! My succulents needed a style upgrade and this is exactly what I was looking for. They also came all the way to Seattle in less than a week 😁
