Our Story

We Smell The Rain is an Amsterdam-based design studio, creating beautiful unique ways to bring nature indoors. Our focus is to bridge the gap between nature and the city.
One of the principle motivation of We Smell The Rain is to remind people of the necessity to treat nature with kindness – to pay attention to the small things, to notice when things start to take a turn for the worse. This is of course no simple task but We Smell The Rain is a small step in the right direction. It is about bringing this ethos of care into the homes and lives of city dwellers, so they can in turn direct this awareness out. 

With our vision in mind we launched our first product collection the Kokedama. Because like small planets, the Kokedama we make are eco-systems in and of themselves, and just like the planet at large, they require specific care and attention in order to thrive.

All of our design work is done in-house and our Kokedama are 100% hand crafted in our studio. We use the highest quality materials we can get our hands on.
