Miguel Nelson of Woolly Pocket
The path to a better world isn't through pavers but via plants, says artist and Woolly Pocket founder Miguel Nelson. "I love architecture but I think if everyone was gardening instead of building, things would be better. I think we were put on Earth to garden."

Woolly Pocket’s breathable fabric planters, made of recycled plastic bottles, whick water away to avoid root rot and are available in nine different sizes and shapes (ranging from $29 to $247) and three colors that include both freestanding and modular living-wall models. If you’re brave enough, you can even carry your plant and its planter around as a tote with the Woolly Vagabond “living breathing handbag.”
- Today’s planters are smarter than ever. They breathe, they drain, and some even light up.
- Not for the feint of heart, but for the green of thumb: A living wall is a vibrant way to celebrate nature in tandem with architecture.
- It’s quite a feat to transform the interior of a convention hall—vast and fluorescently lit—into a feel-good lounge-y space that truly brings the outside in.
- In this exclusive series for Dwell.com, Linda Taalman of Taalman Koch Architecture tracks the hands-on, tight-budgeted renovation of her and her partner's live-work rental in Los Angeles.
- Modern design extends beyond glass walls.
- As the long weekend slowly draws to a near, we've gathered up five of our most clicked on homes on Dwell this week for your perusal.
If you aren't familiar with Woolly Pocket's vertical planters, check their site for a nifty way to grow greens along the walls. These soft Islands are made from the same 100%-industrially-felted-plastic-bottles, offering breathable containers with a moisture barrier that are just a bit different than your basic pot. The peacock blue shade is new and would look loverly with a succulent or bloom inside.
