Sola wood flowers are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to fresh flowers for weddings, events, and home decor. Not only are they eco-friendly and sustainable, but they also offer many benefits that fresh flowers do not.
Sola wood flowers are made from the Aeschynomene aspera plant (AKA the Sola Plant), which grows in the wetlands of Southeast Asia. The root of the plant is a lightweight, corkish, almost spongy material that can be peeled and carved into paper sheets. These sheets are then handcrafted into beautiful flowers that look and feel just like the real thing.
Because they have no shelf life, never wilt or die, and don't require water or refrigeration, sola flowers can be boxed and transported via ships instead of airplanes, reducing their carbon footprint even further.
For florists, sola wood flowers offer several advantages. Aside from easy storage, they are also hypoallergenic and pesticide-free, making them a great option for those with allergies. They're lightweight too, so large bouquets and arrangements have a light-as-air quality to them. And, since they are not grown, there is no specific season; any bloom is available at any times of the year, and each one can be tinted to match any color palette.
One of the biggest benefits of sola wood flowers is that they never die. Unlike fresh flowers, which typically only last a few days, these flowers can be reused and repurposed or used as home decor because they last forever. This not only saves money in the long run but also reduces waste and helps the environment.
Sola wood flowers are not just an eco-friendly, sustainable, and beautiful alternative to fresh flowers. With their longevity and versatility, they are quickly becoming a go-to choice for florists, event planners, and individuals looking for a more sustainable option for their floral needs, and they literally create memories that can last a lifetime!
