The natural D’Art pot from Eternit is contemporary art as well as a plant container. These spectacular planters are created from natural materials, cement, limestone, fibre, air and water producing a durable and long-lasting piece of art. Weighing in at 27 kg, there’s no need of worrying about someone running off with this precious item. Whether you place this natural and modern plant container indoors or outdoors, the Swiss hand-made planter will be a wonderful home to plants, large and small. The containers either have holes in the bottom for drainage, or a water-spill feature that allows excess water to drain without drowning the plants. Because of the porous cement body, whatever plants you have growing in the container are able to breathe and the moisture is regulated, resulting in healthy plants. This eco-smart planter is functional, fashionable and fun, and since the materials are natural, the colors are natural, all throughout – meaning, the color you get, is the color that is going to last.
