Incredible Living Moss Bathroom Mat
Moss mat for the bathroom. How cool and incredible it is to stand in the natural living moss after a bath. Your legs should be grateful. There is nothing like the feeling of fresh cut grass under the toes, especially when stepping out of the shower.
Soft and Naturally Great
The moss carpet by Nguyen La Chanh brings the outside indoors in an untraditionally natural way by replacing it underfoot. The luxuriant green lawn thrives in humid environments, which makes your bathroom a perfect place to grow. Her smart creation first hit the world some two years ago as a part of the artist’s degree course. Unexpectedly, she found herself precipitated with orders to buy this rug immediately after she uploaded images of it to the web.
70 Balls in the Frame
The basic set includes a bath rug for moss frame made of special foam durable waterproof polymer called orthosis, and three varieties of moss: forest, island, and ball. Maintenance required for this little patch of green is limited, as the moss thrives off of the humidity released from daily bathroom rituals. Who would ever think to take a shower and could give for such efficient multi-tasking, growing a little extra dose of green to start your morning or the end of you day. Having seen different images of the sea creatures, charming fish and fauna, this creation, constructed of 70 balls of moss and held together in a latex frame has become an online hit. It feels soft underfoot and does not smell when it gets damp. Each piece of moss is cut into a foam frame that prevents the moss from spreading or growing out of control.
In the last two years she has been working on the design, perfecting it and finding a manufacturing firm capable of making the rug, which uses forest moss as a living carpet.
This is what she said:
“The humidity of the bathroom and the drops flowing from the body, water the mosses. This vegetation carpet produces a great feeling to your feet. The idea was to find a new way of having your plants inside. Not only plants in pots quietly standing in the corner of a living room but alive plants, evolving in the house.”
But does anyone wonder whether there are any other live creatures in the moss?
