-What is kokedama?-

kokedama is a traditional Japanese art form that basically has moss used as a container for a plant. Originating in Japan, kokedama are living plant and moss balls. Traditionally displayed sitting on driftwood or handmade pottery, they also look magical bound up in string and hanging, and are a lovely way to bring a bit of greenery indoors all year round. Kokedama, like their cousins bonsai, are designed to be appreciated for their beauty and for the pleasant effort involved in the growing process. They encapsulate the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which can be explained as an appreciation of the imperfections of nature and the transience of natural beauty.
