Artificial flowers always played a prominent role in people’s lives. Living flowers are short-lived, expensive and not available all the year round.

In order to decorate with the flowers the human life all the time, people always made their copies​​.

In  18-19 centuries ladies’ hats were very fashionable, decorated with artificial flowers made ​​of silk, velvet, ribbons and lace. Fashion-conscious women went so far and wore a hat with an incredible number of flowers and all that immensely amused the audience.
