WHY ARTIFICIAL

COST EFFICIENCY

Your wedding does not need to be as expensive as the market has made them. Artificial flowers have significantly lower costs to that of real flowers. The majority of flowers in the United States are imported from Colombia and Ecuador, creating unnecessary service and transportation fees. “Real-touch” faux flower on the contrary, are designed to feel and look like real flowers; their petals are plush and soft. Traditional silk and polyester made flowers can also add a nice touch to any arrangement, creating the perfect display for any bride! 

LOW ECO-IMPACT

From air freight emissions to employment fatality, the floral industry has a heavy eco-footprint. Commercially available flowers are grown primarily in Colombia and Ecuador, with 91% of operations using chemicals that are illegal in the States. Conversely, artificial flowers, made either from traditional silk or from polyester, are typically created from shaping molds and hand painted by artisan workers. The plastics that wrap the floral wire are environmentally sound, and there is very little risk for employees. Faux flowers are most commonly made in China, where the art begin in ancient times, and are transported throughout the world by boat. Their “forever-lasting” lives enable easy freight with low impact on emissions.
