Silk flowers for early springAfter the harsh, snowy weather in much of the U.S. this winter, spring can’t get here too soon. Unless you are lucky enough to live someplace like Northern California (home to Humble Abode headquarters), where there are already signs of an early arrival of springtime warmth and blossoms, you may have to wait a bit longer for fresh flowers from the garden.

Thanks to traditional artistry, contemporary craftsmanship, and modern materials, you can add beautiful blooms to your home now for a touch of spring – and every season – with extraordinary silk flowers and plants.

The Humble Abode Signature Series offers fine handcrafted silk accents to brighten any room in your home. We stay up to date with the latest in home fashion trends and colors to bring your environment to life with lovely, permanent foliage.

Our silk plants and flowers are made to order with a laborious manufacturing process that begins with botanically correct designs from live species. These distinctive designs are scanned, then an experienced sculptor creates an exact bas relief, from which a skilled mold-maker produces a plastic injection mold. Bolts of durable fabric are silkscreened to an exact image of the scan. Meticulous cutting, finishing, and assembly result in remarkably life-like flowers and leaves.

Another method scans individual flower petals, which are then hand cut and/or hand painted using the finest fabrics and dyes to the exact hues as found in nature. With either method, it usually takes up to two hours to produce one uniquely hand-crafted flower stem.

Stems are assembled into realistic arrangements in quality pots to suit every taste and mood. Best of all, they’re extremely durable, requiring no watering or fertilization to be totally maintenance free, thus an easy way to “go green.” They also make great gifts, especially for anyone who is housebound or in the hosptital.

These are not the ghastly artificial plastic flowers and leaves of old, but gorgeous handmade replicas that will brighten your home year round at a fraction of the cost of live plants and cut flowers from florists.

Here’s to a lovely springtime in your neck of the woods!
