fabric cacti by kaktus.craft


Melbourne maker Mimi loves plants. But, like many of us, she struggles to keep some of her green pals alive. Frustrated with the look and feel of artificial plastic plants (and armed with a needle and thread), Mimi decided to get crafty and stitch together her own cacti out of pretty fabric. And so, the ‘kaktus’ was born.

Each colourful kaktus is made from durable upholstery fabric, and is filled with nifty PET fibre derived from discarded plastic water bottles. How rad is that? To get your mitts on one of Mimi’s spiky creations (she currently offers the Barrel, Saguaro and San Pedro varieties), pop over to the kaktus.craft website
