Studio Planter Tray, Greenwash
Please join the wait list for this variant.
Designed by Bloomist, these simple hand crafted planter trays are made from local terracotta clay by artisans at the Atuto Group in Honduras exclusively for us. Available in Small, Medium, and Large, each tray is greenwashed by hand after being fired.
We recommend repotting plants from plastic containers into terracotta pots to improve drainage and aeration of the soil.
Studio Planters sold separately. Also available in Whitewash.
A former Peace Corps volunteer from North Carolina, Holland Millis has worked with skilled craft-workers in Honduras for decades; his work there for Aid to Artisans merited coverage in the New York Times. Now, he leads the Atuto group in Sabanagrande, Honduras, which produces pieces made from clay, metal, stone, fiber, and wood — including the planters made from local terra cotta clay that Atuto now produces for Bloomist.

Loving my Bloomist planters. I now have several, and they complement each other so well. My plants are super happy in their new homes!
I got two of these, one for the actual Studio Planter Pot which of course fits perfectly, and a second one for the smaller Weathered Garden Pot. For the latter, it works well in my opinion. The color fits. The size is just about ok; the pot sits on the borders instead of fitting inside, but it's a good solution for now.
