The quality of the dried flowers, and the know-how of the specs have been present on the market for decades. There are some really good wholesalers in dried flowers who have been around for long. And it is to these people that Gaetan says he decided to place his trust in for the supplies of dried flowers. He also made the choice to bring to the attention to the people about the ecological side of dried flowers, because dried flowers can be kept for a very long time. And often they are produced in a more eco-responsible way. The dried flowers used in the designs made by Gaetan Jacquet in this article come from Jocaflor.
