Smart Idea: Suspender Plant Hangers

WORDS AND PRODUCTION Annemarie Meintjes PHOTOS Studio Miru

They’re making something of a fashion comeback – but suspenders can do more than just keep your pants from falling down.

This was inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s “How the Whale Got His Throat” from his Just So Stories collection (where a crafty mariner uses his suspenders to stop the whales from eating all the fish in the ocean) and San Francisco-based designer Andrew Kudless’s “Swell Wave” shelf for Louis Vuitton’s latest Objets Nomades collection.

The indigenous, evergreen, drought-resistant plants (Haworthia limifolia spiralis) are available at Starke Ayres nurseries. The hanger and hooks are from Leroy Merlin.
