*The art of making flowers lived its golden age in the 19th century, in a Paris with almost twenty thousand ateliers. As the 20th century came to an end, the craft of the 'createurs de fleurs' in Paris relies on a single independent atelier. Today, 'le savoir-faire' of crafting silk flowers is disappearing.

We are proud to use in our atelier the traditional methods from the 19th century to create silk flowers. Each petal is manually drawn, cut, colored and shaped with specific instruments. The petals are assembled one by one with great attention to details and the creation of a flower can take up to 4-8 hours.
