Hand-turned cork hanging planters are designed for indoor use. These planters were inspired by vintage planters from the 1970's. Cork is naturally porous, making it an ideal material for plants. All-natural leather lace is purchased in the USA. Each planter has a shellacked interior and is finished on the outside with a natural beeswax.
Size: 3" w x 5" h
Leather lace is 20"-21"
