The Fiber Florist business story
Growing up with her Japanese grandmother, Vivian, owner and designer of Fiber Florist started with crafts and gardening at a young age. It only made sense that she would combine her two passions: nature and crafts into her career. She keeps a conscious note to use environmentally friendly materials like felt and recycled fibers in creating her plants.

Amazing Chinese Peonies - so realistic!

In my other life…

I teach my neighborhood’s kids eco-friendly art projects. It’s wonderful to see their creativity shine at that age, they’re so unconfined by any notion to impress, that they make beautiful art.

Did you know…?

She makes a new flower every week on her blog www.fiberflorist.com.
Currently she is creating a series on all the state flowers.
