It all started in December 2016 when Felicia, our founder, received a request for a terrarium from her secret santee. Instead of purchasing one off the shelf, she wanted to customise a design for the recipient.
Through her research, she came across the teardrop geometric vase and succulents. Intrigued by the angular design of the vase and the interesting shapes of succulents, she tried combining both and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

Being curious whether the design can sell, she uploaded a photo of the first teardrop terrarium on Carousell. To her delight, people started enquiring about it and she also received her first request to hold a terrarium workshop for a hen’s party.

She came to see how plants make perfect gifts when combined with art and design. She also realised that art and plants together create unique bonding experiences for participants at her workshops. She took a leap of faith in starting the business and decided on the name “Craftsforgreen” as she wanted something simple that can be easily remembered by everyone.
Since then, the company’s portfolio has extended to teambuilding workshops, wedding decorations, media events, kid’s parties and so forth.
The teardrop terrarium remains our best seller up till today, and Christmas will always be extra special to us (:

The designs you see on Craftsforgreen are the result of her imagination. She believes that plants is the best avenue to express her creativity, as it can be enjoyed by people across all ages.
