The story all started in the area of Nieuwendammerdijk, situated in the beautiful Amsterdam Noord.
Alexander, the company's owner, grew up here and was constantly inspired by the environment around him. As a small child he played in the forest behind his family home, spending most of his time building huts, creating his own garden and making floral necklaces for his Oma (Grandmother), in his secret hideaway amongst the trees.
Alexander has been working with some of Amsterdam’s most prestigious floral names since 2002. A decade later he opened his own store, and works together with his own team of florists. The store is situated in the prestigious Spiegelquartier, home to the Rijks Museum, antique stores and art galleries - conveniently situated in the heart of the canals.
