What are pressed flowers?
Pressed flowers are real flowers with their petals & leaves flattened
The process of pressing omits light & extrudes moisture, helping to preserve the colour & shape of the flowers.
Dye can also be added to enhance the colours
Fresh flowers represent life & beauty while preserved flowers such as pressed flowers represent everlasting love, longevity & immortality
With proper care, the shelf life of pressed flowers can last up to several years or even decades
