Planters Made of Upcycled Boat Sails and Covers

View all 6 Photos

Nomad is one of the latest urban gardening designs by Miriam Josi and Stella Lee Prowse of the The Garden Apartment, a studio dually based in New York City and Paris. An herb planter, the design is split into two sections and hangs from anything from a ceiling to a bike’s handlebars. Perfect for an indoor garden, the waterproof envelope is lightweight stylish in contrasting white and orange. What’s the design’s secret? It’s upcycled from boat sails and covers sourced post-production from manufacturers in the Bronx. Nautical yet modern, the breezy design is echoes the look of sailboats one would see gliding across New York’s Hudson River and beyond. The inspired, eco-friendly product is made in New York and can be purchased online from The Garden Apartment for $32.
