90 years. That's a long time. I'm a sucker for a family business. I also love tools, and long, technical explanations about how they would go about creating your piece. You bring the fabric, and then you look at their walls, website, or something else you've seen to give them an idea of what you want. They tell you if it is possible, talk about the process, and quote you a price. Then, you decide.
How about a bridal bouquet you can keep? Forever? How about a large rosette to be used on a curtain tieback or pillow for home dec use? How about a beautiful floral embellishment for your garment, your keepsake wedding journal, your hat, your hair, your... well, anything, really? Be sure to visit their website for ideas you didn't even know were possible.
Going to their office is a truly delightful experience. Beautiful and comfortable to wander around in, you are encouraged to make yourself at home. You are greeted with enthusiasm, courtesy and respect, by people so passionate about what they do, you'll eventually have to tear yourself away. Today I spoke with Warren (one of the owners), but the personality of the business is extremely customer-friendly. I overheard customer conversations during the time I spent there, and am confident that the same level of kind guidance is offered to everyone who approaches them with an idea.
And boy, do they have examples to show off just how great the work is! Floral topiaries, leaves, flowers ideal for window decorations, and LEATHER.... ahhhh... LEATHER!
