Hand made paper flower crafted from the bark of the Mulberry tree. The paper is dense and tactile, the colours are achieved through crushed flower petals and vegetable dyes. The colour is stunning - peach/apricot and very rich.

These flowers are absolutely magnificent. Each petal has a piece of very thin wire subtlety glued to the paper so you can easily adjust the petals and arrange the flower. It can be kept slightly closed adding interest or thoroughly opened/bloomed to approximately 30cm in diameter.
Eco friendly and made from sustainable bark, these are a beautiful addition to your home or an amazing gift. They are stunning as an individual flower or make an absolutely amazing unique bouquet.
Available in various rich colours and also with a diameter of 50cm - Extra Large.
The stem - strong flexible wire wrapped in the same colour as the petals.
They are made from paper from the bark of the mulberry tree. The mulberry bark is soaked and pulped which is the old traditional way of how paper is made. The paper is made by hand in Northern Thailand under a sustainable government working programme which has been set up to encourage rural communities to utilise skills and trade during the non agricultural season.
The paper is purchased by the artist in Melbourne and the flowers are designed and made in Melbourne, Australia.
Here’s an interesting YouTube video on how the paper is made :-
