Our story

It all started with a grow bag.

Wraxly founders Darrell and Vivi Houghton were in a predicament. Lifelong garden enthusiasts, they found themselves living in a house with a concrete backyard. Forced by necessity to get creative, they discovered grow bags and quickly fell in love with how easy they were to work with and the versatility they provided. Soon, grow bags of various sizes with different vegetables and flowers were spread around their concrete backyard.

Then one day Vivi asked the fateful question, “Why are all our grow bags black? Wouldn’t it be nice to have some colorful grow bags?”

This led to some additional purchases of multi-color grow bags and the discovery of why most grow bags on the market are black: When you water a plant in a grow bag and the water drains out the sides, the fabric acts as a filter and you quickly see unsightly stains. Our colorful grow bags soon became unpleasant to look at!

Up to the challenge, Darrell and Vivi went about designing a grow bag that they would want to buy:

  • all the benefits of a fabric grow bag
  • wouldn’t stain

With a design in mind, Darrell went about finding a manufacturer. After discovering U.S. manufacturers would be prohibitively expensive, he reached out to Chinese manufacturers, and after several duds, finally found a reputable manufacturer that produced quality products.

Many months and several prototypes later, Darrell and Vivi finally hit upon their unique design that uses a waterproof liner to protect the colorful fabric, with a band of un-lined black fabric that allows for all the benefits of a traditional grow bag (easy drainage and air root pruning).

What you see available for sale now is the result of our efforts.

We’re very pleased with our two-tone fabric grow bags and love to use them ourselves. We hope you will give them a try. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with them, too!

Why choose us

Why settle for black grow bags when you can add a splash of color to your garden with a multi-pack of Wraxly two-tone fabric grow bags. The problem with colored grow bags, however, is the tendency to stain when watering your plants. We at Wraxly have designed our grow bags to help avoid this problem. Our unique design allows us to use colors other than black for our grow bags. The 2-tone color scheme is by design: the top, colorful fabric is backed with a waterproof liner to prevent water from seeping through the fabric and staining. The liner also directs water downward, duplicating a more natural, in-ground environment. The black fabric band around the bottom allows water to drain and also promotes natural air-pruning of roots. You get the best of both worlds – water retention like solid containers and soil aeration of fabric grow bags with the Original Two-Tone Premium Grow Bag by Wraxly.

To offer well-designed, high-quality products that organize and beautify your world, one grow bag at a time.
