The Makers, Cara and Danielle, started making kokedamas for a bit of fun, they loved it so much it was decided they needed to share them so they could continue to make and create happy mossy balls. What started out as a lot of plants and a close-knit friendship quickly grew into Girls Gone Koko.

苔玉 Kokedama: Moss Ball

The mossy balls originating in Japan reflect the aesthetic principle of wabi-sabi, a Taoistic form of appreciation for the wonder that is nature. Translated, wabi-sabi is admiring and embracing the wildness, the irregularity, the incompleteness as well the simplicity of living.

One can easily understand how the girls went crazy over these amazing, fun and beautiful kokedamas. Foremost, by what they represent. These plants are not only naturally beautiful, made from sustainable materials and extremely versatile as home decor but also functional. Plants serve as air purifiers, improving your health with increased oxygen levels and thereby increase your productivity.

With Danielle finishing her Diploma in early childhood and Cara with a BA Education and certificate IV in Training and Assessment the natural next step for the girls was to open their workshop to the public to teach people how to make their own kokedamas.

Your Kokedamas will look amazing anywhere, from your office to your bathroom, in a pot, hung or many together as a living art installation. Girls Gone Koko hope these cute balls of moss with their eclectic style and individuality will grow on you and nourish your soul.
