Beloved Flower Lover,
Seattle photographer David Perry and Debra Prinzing collaborated on a storytelling project to document the groundbreaking changes taking place in the cut flower industry.
It began in 2006 when they met several local flower farmers who were growing gorgeous, uncommon ingredients — and they had to work hard to break through the traditional “wholesale” marketing machine to sell their crops direct to area florists.
They soon realized there were similar stories of intrepid flower farmers and nontraditional floral designers all around the country.
They wanted to put a face on the flower farmer – and to inspire floral designers and their customers, as well as everyday supermarket shoppers, to start asking “where were my flowers grown?” and “who grew them?”
It turns out that the field-to-vase movement is as exciting as the culinary world’s farm-to-table movement.
Inspired by Debra, we offered a recent eco design as our ethical offering.
Hugs and kisses
The London Flower Lover
