"The Lady of the Camellias" was the most successful novel by the French author Alexandre Dumas the Elder. J. and Giuseppe Verdi set the drama to music in the opera “La traviata” in 1853. The eponymous lady is only allowed to give camellias, she promises to give up her dissolute life and dies in the end. That’s tragic. For the boutonniére on the lapel today that means: sensitivity, romance and a weakness for the elegant lifestyle in Paris around 1848. A good choice for a visit to the opera.
There is an almost forgotten craftsmanship in every buttonhole (cannot be compared in the least with products from Far Eastern countries). Plastic is not used; every flower is built up properly and not simply plugged together or glued on. Recipes up to a hundred years old serve as the basis for dyeing the fabric.
