The TS Handmade collection offers the retailer a reliable assortment of handmade flower pots, full of style, choice and quality. The number of TS Handmade points of sale is growing steadily. This is not surprising when you look at market developments and consumer trends. Sustainability, tradition and nature are the spearheads of TS Handmade.
The TS Handmade range is known worldwide for its traditional rural indoor flower pots. This collection has countless unique series specially designed for a timelessly stylish interior. Series such as Anne, Cresta and Esra are true evergreens, and can no longer be imagined from the shelves of the garden centre. A rustic flowerpot is indispensable in every style of living.
The demand for handicraft handmade products continues to grow. With the increasing demand for natural products with a rustic character, the rural indoor flower pots are also becoming increasingly popular. The biggest advantages for the retailer in a row:
Most of our TS Handmade series are traditionally hand turned by experienced craftsmen in Portugal. Our cooperation with these craftsmen is based on years of mutual trust and respect. The choice for beautiful durable materials and favourable working conditions is a focus for both parties. As far as we are concerned, this is the starting point for a stylish and honest product of high quality.
Large quantities of clay are extracted by a special machine to extract the air. From the machine comes a kind of sausage made of clay, which is cut into pieces. Each piece of clay is modelled by hand on a traditional turning mechanism, until the right model of flowerpot is produced. A stick indicates the correct height of the pot. In this traditional process, small differences in size can occur. That is the charm of our collection, it creates authentic flower pots, with a unique character.
Now that the base of the national flowerpot is ready, another specialist takes care of the structure of the pot. There is a different tool for each structure. In the Karlijn series this is a special carving tool. With a Cresta flowerpot it is the paint pattern that gives the pot its unique character.
If the pots have the right shape and structure then they are ready for the oven. Once baked they come out of the oven in an orange colour, the characteristic terracotta colour. From the oven, the pots cool down quietly and are sprayed in the desired colour. This spraying is again done manually, which gives each pot its own colour pattern.
Part of our handmade collection is made using the handpressed technique. Beautiful porous clay is manually pressed into a mould. This greatly reduces the chance of differences in size. Also the structure of the pots is almost identical because it is usually processed in the mould. Except for flower pot Amber, where this technique gives each pot its own weathered effect. As you can see, each series has its own character and story.
