What is preserved moss?

Preserved moss is moss that’s been naturally harvested from the floors of the forests of Northern Europe and has undergone a special preservation process to keep it’s vibrant color, texture, and softness. Some of our moss is also naturally colored, to achieve a wide range of colors from turquoise, sunny yellow, to fiery red. Best of all, because of the preservation process, the moss is maintenance-free –  meaning it requires no sunlight, soil, air, or watering.

An important thing to note is that preserved moss is not dried moss! Preserved moss retains its softness, while dried moss is dehydrated, making it crispy and causing it to turn brown and disintegrate over time.

Moss in Design

Moss is one of the oldest plants in the world, with some fossilized species found to be possibly as old as 540 million years old, even before any form of animal started to walk the earth. Moss looks like a lush, thick green carpet but is actually a micro-organism with no roots, seeds, or buds. Instead, it is made up of leaves, stems, and thin fibrous filaments called rhizoids.

Using green moss as a form of vertical landscape design can be attributed to the Buddhist priests. There are records of them using moss as early as 1,300 years ago! The most popular of which is at the Saihoji Temple in Kyoto, aptly called Koke-Dera or the Moss Temple.

Today, moss walls have risen in popularity because of its versatility and the low maintenance needed to keep one. It has all the beauty and style a living green wall can bring to a space minus the lighting and irrigation needs.

The Benefits of Using Preserved Moss

On top of elevating your interior design, preserved moss is also found to insulate sound, making it good for office spaces, reception areas, and other high-traffic areas.
