BOTANISK Limited Collection
Whether you’re a plant swapper, urban gardener, or simply dream of growing a green thumb, BOTANISK has what it takes to sort you out. From tool kits and clay pots to large baskets, this handmade collection doesn’t only add to the fun of indoor potting – it creates jobs in regions where they are most needed. Let’s sprout some seeds of hope!
Sustainable in more ways than one
“The whole collection is made with people in mind. From start to finish the process has been all about the collaboration, developing the items together.”
Maria O’Brian, Creative Leader IKEA.
A collection that grows on you, literally
Best of all, you don’t need a garden or even a balcony to enjoy all the lush greatness. Your apartment jungle is just a few pots and plant swaps away, which is exactly what BOTANISK is all about.
Leaves that sprout new jobs
“We designed it together with an Indian seamstress, an expert embroiderer. After we’d shown her our general idea, she came up with great suggestions on how to do the leaves.” Paulin Machado, IKEA designer.
Dig into BOTANISK
BOTANISK collection is created in collaboration with six social entrepreneurs in India, Thailand, Jordan and Romania. They all have business ideas that are based on creating jobs in regions where they are most needed, and for people that need them most.
Today, IKEA has 27 social business partners in 15 countries across the world, and the number keeps growing. It means 20 100 jobs - 5300 artisans and 14 500 small scale farm holders. The ripple effect improves the lives of 140 000 family members.
