Designed by Bloomist with slightly elongated proportions inspired by vintage British Long Tom pots. These are taller and narrower than usual pots and are most suitable for deep-rooted plants. These simple hand crafted planters are made from local terracotta clay by artisans at the Atuto Group in Honduras exclusively for us.
Available in Small, Medium, and Large. Each pot is whitewashed by hand after being fired.
Drainage hole built in. We recommend repotting plants from plastic containers into terracotta pots to improve drainage and aeration of the soil.
Plant Large pots with taller specimens like monstera and Small and Medium pots with succulents and ferns. And elevate them off the ground with our made-to-match wrought iron plant stands, also hand crafted by Atuto artisans.
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 terracotta clay that Atuto now produces for Bloomist.

I love the vessel, the color and the cause behind it. The idea that I can purchase high quality items and that purchase also supports the talents and economy in a area that is in need is lovely.
We appreciate your support!
I’m very impressed of the quality and how beautiful this planter is. Shipping was fast and well packaged. Thanks so much!
This planter was smaller than it appears in the pics. I really just got this because I like the wrought iron stand. It doesn't seem super special to other terra-cotta pots except it is lighter in color. It is pricey for terra-cotta, but I like that they are supporting small businesses in Honduras.
Thank you Sydney for your support - Terra Cotta Planters are a Bloomist favorite! Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Be well, Candice
These are high quality pots and look so beautiful. Also extremely well packaged. I won't hesitate to order from Bloomist again!
The white wash finish really just looks like the typical terracotta color. And the 9inch planter. Is rather large. I had ordered it for the kitchen and it looks far too big to place on the counter.
These planters are great. I'm very happy with the price, and the quality is good as well. They look great in my plant window. :D
