Please do not forget that this pot is woven by hand and the slight differences in shape and colour are completely normal. Please also remember that the material is natural and therefore we do not recommend them for use outside or on terraces or placed in a hot humid room in front of a window. The colours are natural and may fade if in direct sunlight.
