That might be your grandmother’s jade plant, but this certainly isn’t her planter pot! In creating these one of a kind containers, textile designer and artist Alexia Bilyk trades in conventional terra cotta for-get this-washable paper. The surprisingly durable material is similar to leather in how it wears, and proves the perfect canvas for Bilyk’s playfullly primitive screen-printed patterns.
Washable paper container planter, $25, Alexia Bilyk.
