Flowers made of silk date as far back as early 27th century BC, by the Chinese, and made from the same fabric as their clothes.

Around 1325 the Italians began making artificial flowers. By the 14th century, French silk flowers were all the rage in the old world and the French continued to improve both the quality of the flower and the fabric from which it was made. The better made of these artificial flowers are made botanically correct, and were created first by dissecting the flower and recreating it as closely as possible.

There are increasingly better looking and affordable silk flowers and greenery available today to grace your home for many years. Choose classic flower colors for a timeless look. Fashion them into a bouquet. Many brides are starting to purchase silk bridal bouquets for their wedding, which keep forever. Don’t let wondering how you’ll clean them stop you from adding these lovely additions to your home. Cleaning them is as easy as using a silk flower spray or put salt in a bag with the flowers and shake them clean.

 

EAT LOVE SAVOR® has, since 2010, been more than a virtual platform and print magazine. It is an affluent lifestyle foundation for all the tiers of wealth: from mid-level to core affluent, from high net worth, to ultra high net worth. This readership desires the most clarifying, yet nuanced information on luxury travel, cuisine, home décor, jewelry, and real estate. Within our pages, the reader finds content that identifies the Zeitgeist of the affluent human experience — travels that expand awareness, cuisine that underscores and heightens the perfectibility of taste, objets d’art that exude singularity, provenance and worth. In all these, we strive to seek the meanings beyond elite, elegant, and excellent. We seek the sublime, as we experience what is beyond the horizon, with a copy of EAT LOVE SAVOR® as our guide.
