Wreaths of holly and ivy hanging on front doors. Pine trees rising high in living rooms. The festive season feels incomplete without these little touches of nature to breathe new life into our homes. BloomBack’s preserved flowers are the perfect gifts to capture the Christmas spirit so you and your loved ones can experience the love and magic of the holidays all year round. Encased within pretty glass domes, they make beautiful long-lasting centrepieces for your holiday party.
High-tech blooms constructed with precision and quality
The traditional method of drying flowers causes them to lose their vibrant colour, and their petals and leaves become brittle in the process. Preserved flowers, on the other hand, look and feel exactly like freshly-cut flowers, but they’re totally allergy-free.
To preserve a real flower, all the water content out is drawn out along with proteins, sugar and pigments, carefully using special non-toxic and non-corrosive chemicals. The result is really delicate translucent petals.
The flower is then “fed” with another eco-certified chemical solution that gives it its shape. Chemists are then able to add a whole variety of smells and vibrant colours too by introducing different pigments and essential oils.
Thanks to this advanced technology, preserved blooms can last for at least a year and up to 10 years. Preserved flowers require little maintenance. Apart from keeping them dry and giving them the occasional dusting to prevent dust from collecting on their delicate petals, there’s very little else they need since they don’t need to be watered.
The gift of eternal beauty is environmentally and socially responsible
When it comes to sustainability, the cut flower industry leaves much to be desired. Agrochemicals used to grow flowers that can contaminate the soil and surface water and can even pose health risks to people who come into contact with the pesticide residue on the flowers. High volumes of water and energy are poured into flower farming, leaving a huge carbon footprint in their wake. Yet, they only last a few days before they are thrown out.
Preserved flowers are a more eco-friendly alternative to cut flowers that can be used and reused many times.
Plus, BloomBack isn’t an ordinary floral business. It’s on a social mission to spread joy and champion marginalised women through flowers. The company empowers those from disadvantaged backgrounds by hiring and training them. 10 per cent of every purchase goes to their vocational training and employment.
