In Germany the cornflower has been known as the “Prussian flower” since the 19th century, in Estonia it is even the national flower and in France the Bleuet de France (“Cornflower of France”) is a symbol of the memory of the victims of the war. In addition, the blue flower is a central symbol of romance. Here she symbolizes longing and love as well as the pursuit of the infinite.
Note: In the picture you can see our light blue cornflower. Special feature: the beautiful, actually very light (with a very delicate lilac shade), which becomes lighter towards the middle, hand-dyed color gradient.
In every flower there is an almost forgotten craftsmanship (absolutely not to be compared with products from Far Eastern countries). Plastic is not used here; every boutonnière is built up and not simply put 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 by one of the oldest family businesses in Berlin, founded in 1869 as a hat box manufacturer, made in the Neukölln district.
Ich hatte mir mehrere Alpenblumen bestellt. Mein Favorit ist das Edelweiß, das ich bereits an anderer Stelle bewertet habe. Die Kornblume ist ebenfalls sehr schön. Mir fiel die Entscheidung zwischen den verschiedenen angebotenen Blautönen schwer. Bin aber mit meiner Wahl sehr zufrieden. Vielen Dank auch für das Blumengeschenk.
