Home decor is taking on a more hi-end, inspirational approach, while hand-crafted products are a rising star on the market. Terraria presents a great opportunity, offering a wide array of shapes and sizes.
Studies show that caring for a living plant provides many
known health benefits, but also encourages consumers to slow down and take a break from their daily lives. Emerging trends have shown consumer’s desire to bring wellness into their daily routines, inspiring interior design and self-care products. DIY terrariums and gardening can help reduce stress, anxiety and boost creativity. This is particularly valuable for urban Millennials, who are in need of natural elements that allow them to feel grounded.
Muri works as semi open terraria, which retain water for longer and have a
small opening to allow enough air to flow.
