What is an air plant? An air plant is a more widely used name for Tillandsia - a plant that comes in many shapes and sizes. They are unique in the fact that they grow without soil, deriving moisture and nutrients from the air. Air plants are native to deserts and rainforests of South-America. They can grow on rocks, trees, bushes and even on fences or electric wires in urban areas.​ 

What are the good conditions for growing air plants? The most important conditions for air plants are daylight, air circulation and room temperature over 15 °C. They can take a few hours of direct sun but do not necessarily need it. ​

How to water air plants? There are two ways to water air plants: bathing or spraying. We recommend bathing as then you can be sure that the whole plant will get evenly moist during the watering process. Spraying can be done in between baths when it seems that the plant needs extra moist. Air plants need to be watered 1-2 times a week. The plant should get more water when the leaves get curly or the leave edges become brownish.​

How to bath air plants? Fill up a bowl or bucket with water at room temperature (18-20°C). Submerge your plant so that all leaves get wet. Leave the plant in water for 15-30 minutes. After watering remove the excess water by shaking the plant gently. We suggest to leave it on a towel upside down to dry. Air plants that are flowering can also be submerged but not the flowering point.​ 

Do air plants need fertilizer? Fertilizer is not necessary but it will keep them in top shape. An orchid fertilizer can be given after the plant has blossomed, as this process takes a lot of energy from them. Please follow the instructions on the package.​ 

Do all air plants bloom? Yes, all air plants bloom once in a lifetime, the flowering period can range from few days to few months, depending on the plant species. When the flowers begin to shrive, it can be cut off with scissors. After flowering the plant usually begins to produce a new plant. An offspring can be separated if it has grown at least 1/3 of the size of the mother plant.​​​​

Bags should not come in contact with water as they’d soak it up and get moldy.In case of stains, stuff the straw bag with tissue paper before cleaning or repairing the purse to maintain the bag’s shape. Stains can be removed with a damp soft cloth. Wring the cloth thoroughly to remove excess water until the soft material is damp to the touch.If the cloth is dripping wet, the straw purse will soak up the excess water. Wipe the bag gently with the damp cloth to remove surface dirt. Wipe the entire straw purse down with the clean damp rag. Wipe gently and in the direction of the straw purse’s weave; do not attempt to wipe against the grain of the straw handbag. Doing so may cause damage to the straw fibers. Place the purse on a table in a well-ventilated area.Allow the straw purse to dry a minimum of 12 hours.
If your bag gets wet:Wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying.When drying your bag, stuff the inside with newspaper to help the bag hold its shape and to help absorb moisture from the interior. If your bag gets dry: Massage a high-quality leather conditioner into the leather and use a clean cloth to gently wipe off excess. If your bag gets dirty: Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface.Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.Start by always handling your leather with clean hands - oil and residue will easily transfer to the leather. Every now and then, briskly sweep your leather bag with a soft, dry, or slightly damp cloth.Once or twice a year, remove dirt buildup by wiping down your leather bag with a cleaner made specifically for leather. Apply in a circular motion, and wipe off with a slightly damp cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather. When not in use: Store them away from heat, humidity, sunlight, and dust and preferably in a fabric bag. 

  • Dry clean recommended.
  • Hand wash with cold water if necessary, air dry.

Your porcelain can, with some care, be safely used in the microwave and dishwasher. Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven) are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your porcelain.To avoid glaze scratches ideally, you can store your porcelain in plate racks or with linen/felt between each item. Be careful! Always place very hot items onto either wood or cloth.
