My name is Gwendolyn Smithuis.
In my work as a perfume consultant, i'm surrounded with the most lovely aromatics inspired by nature.
Fortunated to learn from two Masters of Floral Arrangements at the 'Holland College' in the Lier, i'm now able to bind these 'Gifts of Nature' into Lovely flower binders .
My partner Levin is a Treetechnitian and we live in Assenede, a small countryvillage near Gent, the most beautiful city Of Belgium! It was here at the beautyschool in Gent that a learned my herbalism skills. I work only With dried materials , collected with love and respect for our wonderful Earth and surroundings.
About everything you'll see on this site is natural and made with original flowerbindings techniques.
