Tilburg, 23 april 2016 – We were pleasantly surprised and greatly honoured to find out that Ellen Degeneres had chosen four pots from our most popular collection of 2016 for her set design.
“Check this! was forwarded to me a couple of weeks ago by our American distributor. In the video, I watched Ellen Degeneres talking to President Barack Obama. At first, I was rather puzzled why he wanted to show me this. Then it dawned on me. I spotted four pots from our RIB collection in the decor. You could have knocked me down with a feather!”, was Maartje Mutsaers’ reaction. She is Marketing Manager with Capi Europe. “There was absolutely no commercial deal involved. It is a huge compliment.”
And The Ellen Degeneres Show is not the only platform on which Capi Europe has been presented recently. A television programme that features Capi Europe flowerpots on a weekly basis, is the popular Dutch tv show Robs Grote Tuinverbouwing, on SBS6. Another example is “De Strijd”, by VARA, in which our director Toine van der Ven was interviewed.
Ellen selected four RIB flowerpots, colour ivory, from the Nature Rib collection. As the name suggests, these flowerpots were inspired by shapes and structures from nature whereby plants become one with these pots. The flowerpots are handmade, which gives each piece a different, unique appearance. The RIB collection is available from all major garden centres.
