Fibreclay has a more authentic appearance, over time the Fibreclay weathers down and emits salts which create a cloudy appearance on the surface. The Fibreclay will continue to develop its own patina as it weathers.
Fibreclay is produced via an innovative and patented process that combines fibre recovered from the waste material of pulp mills with clay. The result is an extremely solid material with rigidity similar to that of plywood.
Another major benefit of Fibreclay planters is that they are extremely environmentally friendly. In addition to being produced from waste materials, the energy usage in manufacture is only 10% of that for planters in other ceramics and plastics.
