Please Welcome Henrik

In August, Grama Design welcomed Henrik Solberg to the team. Henrik started as Sales Manager at Grama Design on 1 August and will handle sales on both Danish and Norwegian markets.

Henrik comes from a similar position in the industry, why several of you may know him already. This also means that Henrik can give a lot of good advice and guidance in connection with your order placements.

We are really pleased to welcome Henrik to the team and hope that he can help provide you an even better service in the future. Please welcome him when he drops by your shop or garden center.

Please welcome Sanne to the team

We are really pleased to welcome Sanne Kaas Vestergaard to the Grama Design team.

In August, Sanne started as an administrative employee at Grama Design. Sanne will replace Marianne, who after many years in Grama Design, has decided that it is time to seek new challenges.

We will miss Marianne, but at the same time we are happy to have Sanne join the team. Sanne comes with a wide experience from both administration and forwarding and will therefore bring a lot of good skills to the table.

So when you call the office in the future, it is very like Sanne who will pick up the phone, so please give her a warm welcome.

Spring has arrived and the warehouse is full

Spring 2019

It is Friday, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and we have just received the last stock container with spring items.

The warehouse is therefore filled with beautiful garden pots for spring, which will be delivered to garden centers and shops so that they are ready for Easter, when the garden season officially starts.

If you are still missing some garden pots for your shop, we can still send out items next week so you have them before Easter.

Grama Design visits potteries

Marianne, Anette and Hien

At Grama Design we have just returned from Vietnam, where we have been checking out all the many beautiful garden pots that are being produced now, so that they are ready for spring.

Handmade garden pots

The productions in the area around Saigon are filled. Everyone is active and producing beautiful garden pots. All pots are made by hand – a craft that has been practiced throughout generations.

The large kilns for the burning of pots are also filled. All garden pots are carefully put into the kilns when they are dry and ready for burning. Before the kilns are lit up, a prayer is made in the little prayer house at the end of the kilns for successful burning.

Bustle in the warehouse

Grama Design’s warehouse in Vietnam is also starting to get very full. It is therefore fortunate that the first containers of garden pots for the spring will already be shipped in three weeks.

And fortunately, we have our wonderful Danish / Vietnamese colleague, Hien, employed to keep track of everything in the warehouse.

We can therefore already sense that spring is on its way.

Grama Design’s Representaive in Vietnam

Grama Design's Representative in Vietnam

At Grama Design we are pleased to welcome Hien La to the team. Hien has just been employed as Grama Design’s representative in Vietnam, where she will among other things be responsible for the quality control.

Hien is Vietnamese, but speaks Danish, English and Vietnamese as she is married to a Dane and lives in Denmark in the summer time.

In the winter time, which is the time when all Grama Designs garden pots are produced, Hien lives in Saigon. Here she will be responsible for the daily quality control in the productions.

We look forward to the cooperation and to have a representative in Vietnam to address the challenges that can be difficult to take care of when you are based in Denmark.

New showroom

Black soil fontæner

Grama Designs’ new showroom in beautiful surroundings in Jutland, Denmark, is now officially open.

The work to transform the old barn from 1800 into a beautiful and rustic showroom is now done, and we look forward to showing our customers all our new items for 2019.

Part of the showroom is outdoor, where the big black soil pots and fountains are set overlooking fields and a small pond.

In our showroom we display all 550 item numbers and allow all our customers to come and choose their range for 2019.

In the weeks 24-25 and 33-34 we have our regular trade fair days, where you will have the opportunity to come and choose which garden pots you wish to have in your assortment for next year.

If none of these periods fi t your calendar, please let us know and we will find a day that suits you better.

When ordering goods at the fair, good discounts are obtained on both container purchases and pallet orders.

New permanent showroom

The old and very slanting floor is removed.

At Grama Design we are very happy and proud to be announcing that we have decided to establish a permanent showroom at our home address in beautiful surroundings at Djursland, Denmark.

New life in the old barn from 1800

The work to transform the old barn from 1800 into a beautiful and rustic showroom is now well under way, and we expect to be able to open the doors to our new showroom in May 2018.

In addition to the old barn, part of the old stables from the 1700 will also be transformed into showroom. Furthermore, our big fountains and black soil pots will have their own beautiful space overlooking the fields and the small lake.

Right now it all looks very raw and cold, but in a few months it will be light green and filled with inspiration and beautiful garden pots, and we look very much forward to welcoming both new and old customers.

Beautiful vegetable gardens made of garden pots

Vegetable gardens

Finally, spring is on its way, and a good way to get the spring feeling started is by making your own small vegetable garden, where you can sow the early varieties.

Whether you live in an apartment or a house, it’s nice to have your own little vegetable garden. A good alternative to the raised bed is to make a beautiful vegetable garden out with garden pots.

You can either use a single garden pot, or have a lot of small pots where you plant lettuce and certain herbs that can tolerate the early spring.

Mix and match the variety of designs and shapes that the beautiful chocolate brown terracotta pots come in.

Terracotta pots are very suitable for growing vegetables, as the garden pots are made from natural materials. The clay which is used to make the pots come from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, and the garden pots are sustainably produced, why you can easily use them to grow vegetables.
