This boutonnière offers a quick excursion into Greek mythology: For example, the beautiful young man Hyakinthos was rather accidentally transported into the afterlife by the god Apollo by throwing a disc. In sorrow, Apollo turned his favorite's drops of blood into flowers. Name day for hyacinth is August 17th. Here are the variations: Hyacinth (English), Jacinto (Spanish), Hyacinthe (French), Giacinto (Italian), Jacek (Polish) and Jácint (Hungarian).
In every flower there is an almost forgotten craftsmanship (not to be compared with products from Far Eastern countries). Plastic is not used here; any boutonnière is literally built up and not simply plugged together or glued on. Recipes up to a hundred years old serve as the basis for dyeing the fabric.
Care instructions: Protect from moisture and always store in the gift box provided. Every boutonnière box will exclusive by one of the oldest family businesses in Berlin, founded in 1869 as a hat box manufacturer, made in the Neukölln district.
