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, our medium-blue cornflower is a bit "illuminated" and appears lighter in color than it is. The pictures on the jacket are more true to color. Also available as a very light blue boutonnière with a light 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 the buttonhole from moisture and always keep it 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.
