A Little Hobby
Hello! My name is Natalia Kondratenko. I am from Kiev, Ukraine. It all started with a simple passion for fabric flowers in 2013. I made the flowers from a simple fabric and treated them by the candle. But the desire to create a truly original and real-like flowers required deeper knowledge. At that time there was negligible information about this technique, and I had to glean all the knowledge. Since the knowledge of "Somebana" technique was mainly from Japan, books and other information were in Japanese…
But it's all in the past. Now we have all the necessary information on flower-making in both English and Russian languages in our database. Thanks to our friends and partners from the Land of the Rising Sun, we have all the necessary tools and materials. But most importantly - the knowledge. The knowledge which we will give to you.
All training materials for silk floristics provided on our site are created by us. We try very hard to make videos, instructions and descriptions as clear and accessible as possible. While many masters of flower-making sell their tutorials from $100-$200, as well as Japanese books on flower-making, we present them for free! Our main activity is the sale of Japanese materials for making fabric flowers, while teaching is our favorite hobby.
We deliver the materials from our shop all around the world, with no exceptions. We provide a lifetime warranty on our tools. We respond to all emails and questions. If something is not clear or requires any clarification, please write boldly!
