Araw

TOARAWN

The Handmade Araw Planter is made from a Cement base, however, these Planters are very different as they also include recycled materials in the composition.  Micro Silica and Fly Ash are substituted of up to 15% of the Cement (they are by-products from Steel and Power Industries), Recycled Bottles are also used in the form of Glass Sand and the water used in crafting the planters is from the Rainwater Harvesting system from the buildings or recycled from the Wash Bay.

With these added materials it adds compressive and flexural strength to the mixed materials so these planters are very durable and should last a lifetime.

They are not cast in a mold, each one is hand thrown, layer by layer so they are all 100% unique.  Furnaces are not used either so the planters dry naturally as they are cement-based. 

The Araw is a round planter but with a distinguished shape, the foot of the pot is far wider than the top, the taper from the top to the base is gradual down the long slender neck of pot.

After Care:

  • Remove all packaging on receipt of delivery. The pot could become stained if the packaging is left on and then the pot is sitting in the rain.
  • We suggest using the rubber feet provided to place underneath it. This will raise the pot marginally off the floor to aid drainage from the pot and reduce the risk of staining around the base.
  • Keep the drainage hole in the base of the pot free from blockage.
  • Do not use any cleaning products, it may damage the finish.
  • Clean with a sponge and water.
