What's preservation, and what process do our eternal roses go through to become the world's most beautiful preserved roses? Let’s get a little historical… Flower preservation exists since early history, although deliberate flower preservation is a more recent phenomenon. In the Middle East, the bones of pre-historic man were discovered with delicate wildflowers probably as a tribute to a passing loved one. Brightly colored and vivid flowers were also found in Egyptian tombs. These flowers were approximated to be 4,000 years old. Flowers essentially are being used for decorative purposes such as jewels, fans, and gloves. And nowadays, as we´ve mentioned previously, preserved flowers, especially our Lulu Rose© roses are becoming one of the biggest Booms of the flower market!
Why the Eternal Beauty of Lulu Rose© Is Becoming So Wanted?
Starting with the most important point: Lulu Rose© preserved flowers and their durability is probably the most important characteristic. Out of the fact that they are completely NATURAL roses from Naranjo Farms that are preserved in their natural state.

How Do Preserved Flowers Actually Get Preserved? And What Process Do They Go Through in Order to Get Such a Stunning, Elegant, and Perfect Result in the Rose as It Is?
Well, let us tell you that preserved flowers undergo a different type of procedure in comparison to fresh-cut roses. And this in order to be able to maintain the roses´ beauty for a long period of time. We first get rid of the roses´ color, and so our roses become white. After this, our roses get submerged in the desired color outcome you specifically want. And then we let them air dry for about 24-48 hours depending on the rose variety, and voilà! The eternal beauty of Lulu Rose© is born.
