Joan Català is the founder of Omotesandō Plants, kokedama specialists. He explains that Omotesandō is the product of a love of plants, the desire to start something new, and a trip to Japan. Their kokedamas have appeared in publications such as AD and have been used to decorate hotels like the Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona.

Kokedama means 'ball of moss'. This Japanese technique is more than 500 years old and uses moss to create an entirely natural plant pot. Omotesandō seeks to use this technique to bring a piece of nature into every home.
