made from a biological cotton, ‘hanging gardens, are cloth ‘hand bags’ that are a good alternative to planting balcony plants and flowers. doubling as a fashion accessory, they simplify the transportation of greenery from the florist or nursery. they can easily be hung from balcony railings. a new smaller concept of the ‘hanging garden’ can also act as a means of preventing excess packaging, which occurs when you buy flowers in a standard pot.

the form of ‘tutrix’ draws on that of a winter garden, crystalized by frost. the tutrices are shaped like branches, where each one can be sheafed into another, allowing them to accommodate and grow with the plant.
