July 2017 –
As a florist, I found out that, nowadays, cut flowers and plants are organically grown, without the use of pesticides and even have the highest requirements regarding sustainability, but the packaging is still from non- recyclable plastics. That has to change!
For this project, I did research about a traditional production process of wool spinning. But instead of wool, I used the packaging of fresh cut flowers. I reused this material to make woven rasters were flowers can stay up straight in the vase.
Consumers can arrange easily their own bouquet by using only a couple of fresh flowers. No special techniques required and without the use of branches of green to ‘fill’ the bouquet.
