INGEFÄRA terracotta plant pots are a modern version of traditional terracotta pot and saucer sets. Terracotta has been used throughout history for sculpture and buildings, as well as for pottery. It is ideal for plant pots because it’s porous and holds excess water, so the plant can draw out moisture when needed. The distinct, warm ‘terracotta’ color comes from the iron content in the clay. The surface changes as it comes into contact with the elements, adding more charm and character over time.
