What are Preserved Flowers?
Preserved flowers are natural plants that are taken through a preservation process whereby it keeps them looking fresh for at least one year. This timeframe can easily be exceeded.
Our flowers are cultivated and selected in Kenya, the country where we initially created our preservation technique in 1984.
The complex process of preserving flowers can be outlined in the following steps:
- The natural flowers come fresh from the farms. Our team inspects batches of roses and carefully choose the best quality rose heads. then the stem is cut off and placed on trays which will then go into a stabilising solution.
- During the process, the natural saps of the flowers are replaced with a glycerin-based solution. As a result of this process the flowers loose their color leaving the petals completely transparent. They will then undergo a different process of dying and colouring, giving them that famous vibrant glow.
- After this process, the preserved flowers are dried.
- Lastly, the best quality roses are chosen to make our unique creations.
