According to designer Igor Mitin: “The idea is that anyone can make an individual interior decoration with “facepot” and friends’ or relatives’ images. The Image is printed and stuck to the pot. After that the transparent protective pot is put over the main pot. It will save the image during a watering process. Moreover, transparent protective pot accurately fits the image to the pot’s shape and makes it vivid and complete. The idea is to buy more lush plants. The choice is yours, but it is better when the plant hides the top of the pot. In such case, we create a true “haircut” for a person on the image. Pots with black-white images can be a good decoration for restaurants or offices. I think that “facepots” will give joy and lots of fun for everyone.” Continue reading »
