About

Thanks for dropping by my little shop where you'll find the flowers I make from vintage, upcycled and, occasionally, new fabrics.

I came up with the name 'florigami' to describe my folded fabric flowers. 'Kanzashi tsumami' is the real name for this ancient Japanese art . Thesilk flowers made this way were used to decorate the hair of girls, geisha and young women at special ceremonies such as weddings.

Found something you like but not quite the right size? Do you need more of an item? A matching pendant, ring or brooch? Please drop me a line via the 'contact' link. I'd love to help you out!
