Inspired by her love for plants and a background in design, Ripples Home was launched by Anisha Raina in October 2020.
"Lack of colour options, designs, sizes , good aesthetics - the planters market had a huge gap to fill. And in finding a solution to this, Ripples Home was born."
Moving to London for my post grad was a big adjustment for me. Having lived in a house full of dogs, I was never alone. Being away from my family and dogs for the first time was the hardest change for me.
I got my first plant, Leila (a piece lily) in London. Taking responsibility for her life, watching her shrivel up on the days I forgot to water her and subsequently coming to life a few hours after I did, made me feel less lonely in my tiny studio apartment.
After Leila, I started adding more plants to my apartment. Along with adding life to my overall minimal space, they also made me happier and more productive.
With the Covid 19 outbreak, I had to abruptly leave my studies and come back to India.
Back home in India, because of my mum, our house was always full of plants and I noticed, as much as the plants added life and vibrance to our home, the basic plain ceramic/ plastic planters stuck out like a sore thumb, and didn't go with the overall aesthetics of our home.
With my newfound love for plants and a background in design (I was studying Product and Furniture Design in London) I decided to find a solution to this problem and design beautiful planters and pots that would not only look good in our outdoor spaces, but also go well with the interior aesthetics of our homes. And that's how Ripples Home was born.
I'm so happy to have you in this journey with us. Here's to building our very own green oasis together.
