Blossoms of Anthophile are made-to-order artificial flowers from a plastic material named Foam.
Each petal is cut, shaped on iron, and colored by hand by the artist Lara Mats, a nature enthusiast with a big love of florals.
These realistic flowers are ideal as flower arrangements in hotels, restaurants, lobbies, events and in any professional area you want to add a unique flower touch.
Blossoms of Anthophile create the perfect solution for those who don’t want the chore of taking care of high-maintenance real flowers.
Due to foam material, the flowers are very long-lasting, don’t tear or break, and are light as a feather.
Approximate measurements since the flowers are handmade:
Stem length: 40cm
Flower diameter: 14cm
Full flower length: 47cm
The stem length, starting from the bottom to the first leaf, is 18cm
Flowers may require a little bending and unfluring after unboxing. Gently tease the petals with your fingers to open up the flower.
Keep away from heat and water. For example, don’t put them in a vase with water.
How to clean them:
1. Use a cold air hairdryer in low intensity in order to remove any dust
2. With a soft fresh wet sponge or paintbrush rouge clean softly the leaves, buds, and stems. Except the actual flower.
3. Then the actual flower: In a bowl mix cold water with one drop of body lotion, dip the flower, and gently rotate for 6 seconds. After that, dip the flower into a bowl with clean water, again for 6 seconds. After removing the flower from the water, rotate it a bit so it can be dry. Unflure the petals after if needed.
There is no need to proceed often with cleaning instructions 2 and 3. The number 1 cleaning instruction is more than enough.
The current lead time until dispatch for all orders is 1- 2 weeks.
Stems can be cut but not bent. They can be bent gently but there is a chance that the material will not have a smooth surface.
