What Is The Origin of Artificial Flowers?

According to archaeologists, humans have been imitating plants since ancient times. An example of this belief is that replicas of flowers have been found in ancient caves. Ancient Egyptians also made replicas of flowers and leaves using fine horns.

Artificial flowers are believed to have been first invented in China 1,500 years ago. The Chinese first made artificial flowers using silk. At the time, court ladies ordered silk flowers to be worn in their hair. Later, the trend spread to the wealthy outside the court and later to Japan and Korea as new trade routes opened up. Artificial flowers became increasingly popular in these countries and eventually spread from the East to Western societies.

Over time, other cultures and societies also made their own artificial flowers. Starting in the 12th century, Italian merchants began producing artificial flowers from silkworm cocoons. As a result, silk flowers became very popular. In France in the 1300s, they improved the process by using better quality silk to create more realistic flowers. In the 15th century, fake flowers made in France were considered the best.

In the 19th century, the French introduced the silk flower trade to England, and the British brought the craft to America, where it became a major industry and extremely popular. The silk flower industry stagnated for hundreds of years until the Victorian era arrived in the late 19th century. During the Victorian era, silk bouquets and luxurious flower arrangements of fresh flowers were extremely popular. Flowers were an important part of everyone's life, and the language of flowers allowed people to send messages to each other simply by sending a bouquet. Most artificial flowers are made of silk, but other materials such as velvet, muslin, satin, crepe, linen, and tulle are also used.


In the 20th century, artificial flowers took on new forms. New materials such as nylon, cotton, satin, and paper were introduced, all of which became increasingly popular. As a result, the industry no longer relied on silk.

Most of the world's silk flowers are produced in the Guangdong province of China in Asia. The artificial flower production industry in New York and Paris is still relatively small. They pay great attention to detail to ensure that the flowers are close to nature and botanical, even including details of stamens, petals, and calyx.

Artificial flowers have come a long way since their creation 1,500 years ago. Our carefully selected collection of luxurious artificial flowers will change the ambience of any environment with their beauty and natural lively look.
