About WabiMoss

Sales 591
On Etsy since 2016

When I first saw moss, brought to green after a spring rain on a rock outside my cabin, I was mesmerized. Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, “The Signature of All Things”, speaks about moss time, different from human time, in that moss is slow and patient in its evolution. Moss also is adaptive and exists in harmony with its environment, adapting to different light and water. I resonate with these qualities of slowness, and quiet. I, like moss, love to sit upon rocks absorbing the sights and smells, the feel and taste of the world, allowing my interior world to be transformed by this communion.

It started a decade ago in Santa Barbara, California. Designing beautiful artwork has always been our passion. Inspiring people to feel calm and peaceful in their homes or business is our mission.

Initially we explored live moss walls and vertical gardens, but found them difficult to maintain with their watering requirements, light sensitivity and need for constant attention. We needed a better solution. This led us to using preserved moss, lichen and plants for a truly care-free experience, while also sustaining the stunning beauty of the real plants. Our work brings the inspiration of nature indoors, so you can enjoy the soothing, yet enlivening green everyday.

We have traveled to Japan extensively and are inspired by the Japanese aesthetic. Our work aims to showcase the natural world and the sense of calm reflection contained within. Moss wall art is not just a green wall, but also a mini zen garden in your home. Bring the beauty of nature indoors.

Frequently asked questions
What kind of care does this artwork require?

There is no care except to place indoors out of the sun. After a year or so, you may want to dust off the work with a can of compressed air.

Are the plants real?

Yes, all our plants in the art is real. The preserved moss maintains it’s color and soft texture. You wont know the difference. It's incredible!

Where should I place my moss wall art?

Moss wall art is made to be placed indoors only. We also recommend not having the product in direct sunlight, because, over time, the sun can damage the work. Because these are preserved plants without any dirt, the artwork is very light and can be hung on any wall without any worry. Even the largest pieces can easily be supported by one or two screws into drywall.

Will I get exactly the same work as I see in the picture?

No. Each piece is a unique work of art. When purchasing from us, the piece that you receive will be similar to the one in the image, but not exactly.

For how long will the artwork last?

Since these are preserved plants, the artwork will last for decades, if kept out of the sunlight. The work will be as beautiful in years to come as it is now.

What are the frames made from?

We make each of our frames with pine wood. We use the "shou sugi ban" firing technique after the frame has been hand-assembled. If you prefer a different frame color, please let us know.

What is your return policy?

We offer a 100% guarantee on our work. We hope you will love it, but if you want to return it, make sure to contact us immediately and return the work within 14 days of receipt. You must pay the shipping costs for the return journey. When we receive the work back, we will refund you the full cost of the work.
