Dried Flowers Are Hot News This Year

Our Dried Flower range is now coming back into stock and we are proud to work with Koos Lamboo Dried & Deco and have done so now for over 20 years. Back in the 80’s when Dried Flowers were big news Koos Lamboo were one of the biggest growers and driers in Holland. . The fashion changed and Dried Flowers were pushed away to the back of the room and forgotten, only to be seen in the sort of hairdressers where you could have your hair set.

Dried Flower Trends and Inspirations

We’ve been following dried flower trends for a while. It started with some Instagram posts in late 2016, could it be true, dried flowers were being mentioned again? South Korea and Japan were early adopters, posies and decorations were petite sometimes minute and perfect in every way. Each flower was chosen with extreme care and placed with precision.

We were inspired to create some dried flower curtains for our stand at the Spring Fair in Birmingham earlier in the year and were inspired by Rebecca Louise Law.

Extra Blue Lavender Harvest

Dried Flowers Fresh From The Field – chapter 1 Lavender

We work very closely with the best dried flower experts in Holland. You might think that France or even England would be where we sourced our Lavender but as we are sourcing for colour and quality of flowers we find Holland is our best option for the Extra Blue Lavender – giving us a really bright, strong colour and of course a great scent. We were over checking the Lavender earlier on in the season – and saw the Extra Blue Lavender being harvested, just look at how blue these stems are.
