Object of Desire: A Cloth Sack to Swaddle Tiny Houseplants

January 26, 2018

I’m a big fan of the cachepot. First, the ornamental flower pot gives me an excuse to practice my French–that’s ˈkaʃpəʊ for you anglophones–and then there’s the fact it helps me to avoid turning my apartment into a potting shed.

A collection of fabric sacks from Bookhou are useful to stash any manner of bits and bobs, but designers John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj are especially fond of putting them to work as plant holders. They can dress up a plain Jane plastic pot:

  A collection of Bookhoo Small Storage Bags; assorted prints are $ each.

 Each print is screen-printed onto linen with solvent-free ink. The lining is made from organic cotton canvas.

The tops of the bags fold down or stay up to accommodate different sizes of pot. Bags are approximately 6 inches high with a 5-inch diameter.
