Our true passion for finding unique pieces for our home was the inspiration in creating our collection.
Picture this, two young starry eyed homeowners sitting on the floor of their new home together cultivating visions and story boards like a 1000 piece puzzle slowly slotting in to one another as they ‘’Just fit’’ to form a completed masterpiece – our home. You can imagine the kind of wild and unrealistic ideas being thrown in to the universe as the want and need for only the best, most unique pieces would reign supreme. It was agreed that the desire to have a house that gave you the same calm, vibrant energy and resemblance of a forest or a jungle was what we wanted to achieve and so a task was set! Queue the search for the perfect pots and pieces that would compliment our jungle plants spewed across the house.
When you imagine a jungle, you think of lush greenery, birds chirping away, vibrant colours from exotic flowers blooming and fruit boasting from the trees. It’s a sight for sore eyes, we are sure you can agree?
More About Potanical
So you can imagine the dismay after visiting what felt like every nursery and pot shop in Johannesburg. Only to be met with the same dull, miss-shaped, overpriced pots – as if it had become the accepted norm within our country to have a greyscale, sand stone mass produced fibre cement pot distributed across the various gardens and interiors of our homes.
Generally, we are more like the ‘Do it yourself’ kind of people anyway. So, instead of feeling defeated, every tool, leftover bag of cement, paint and paint brush was rummaged through the garage after copious amounts of DIY articles and blogs to bring our vision to life. Honestly, this is when it all started and boy did the imaginations go wild. Months of planning, cement mixing, blood, sweat and tears went into creating the perfect products! A combination of our dreams and hopes. Dreams and hopes which we intend to create in all your hearts and all your homes.
Thus, Potanical was born. In all its hand crafted, premium glory! A pot to suit any vision and placement your heart desires. Our collections include vibrant colours that will unleash the jungle vibe or that soft neutral touch that completes an oasis. What about a pot that is perfectly suitable for a child’s nursery? – well we have that too.
In order to bring this brand to life, we have sourced and manufactured only the finest statement-making planters that can be used both indoors and outdoors due to our impeccable quality and technically advanced materials and paints that are strong, light-weight and waterproof both inside and out. Not to mention their eye-catching, unique designs and trends suited for all tastes. We have worked extremely hard to provide South Africa with key elements that are exclusive, affordable and will ultimately transform your home and work space environment.
From that starry eyed couple sitting on their living room floor (now surrounded by their own specialized jungle), we hope and we BELIEVE that you will love what Potanical has to offer as much as we do.
