Jurianne Matter Kore Paper Flowers
The easiest DIY bouquet of flowers!
All you need to make this bouquet of flowers or a lovely wreath is the contents of this set. There’s no need to cut or glue anything: everything has been perforated and creased for you, and the flower stems – the threadwire – are included. Cut the flower wire to the desired length, guide it through the perforated slits and put together your bouquet.
Jurianne got the inspiration for these flowers when she was walking through a big meadow along a riverbank: there were reed panicles, thistles and lots of crazy varieties of ferns and grasses. What a beautiful combination!
Kore (named for the daughter of Demeter, the Greek goddess of agriculture) is a doubly sustainable bouquet: it will never wilt and its serene palette of colours is a perfect match for every interior. Each flower can also be presented separately as an individual, subtle eye-catcher in your living room.
Additionally, Kore is the perfect gift to send someone: the flat A4 format can easily be sent in an envelope and will fit through every letterbox!
- Contents: 4 cards in A4 format (9 punched-out flowers) and 6 metres of flower thread.
- The biggest thistle is 8 cm in circumference when folded up.
- The biggest reed panicle is 10 cm long when folded up.
- The fern is 25 cm long.
“For me, a product is only truly beautiful when it’s been created with respect for nature and humankind”.
There has never been any alternative for me: since day one I have done my utmost to create my products in a way that is as clean and fair as possible. That goes for the paper (FSC, eco inks) and for the packaging (cornflour bags, which will be discussed later). The same goes for my fabrics: the products are made under the world’s best certification. From the seed in the ground right down to the stitching in the factory, it all meets the strict GOTS requirements.
To make a truly fair product, you sometimes have to take unorthodox measures. For example, in the years to come I will gradually replace the biodegradable packaging with ‘normal’ OPP plastic. This idea took quite some getting used to, but the facts are clear: the biodegradable bags seem innocent and green, but they turn out to cause lots of environmental problems during the recycling process. The Kennisinstituut Duurzaam Verpakken (Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging/KIDV) therefore advises normal plastic for regular use, which then should be recycled as plastic waste. That way the bags can be recycled and used for Dopper water bottles, binbags or handy crates. I will also clearly state how the packaging of each new product can be recycled best.
