Hardly to be surpassed in symbolism: white carnations have been a symbol of marriage and love since the Middle Ages. It is therefore the right choice as a boutonnière for the groom to the wedding. Pan Tau, the hero of the TV series of the same name from the 1970s, also wore the white buttonhole - but was not married. The white carnation is traditionally worn with a tuxedo or tailcoat and therefore has a black stem wrapped in silk. If it peeps out from behind the lapel, it goes almost unnoticed. Optionally also available with a green stem. Our bestseller is the medium white carnation. We consider the large carnation shown here particularly suitable for stage performances.
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.
