Here, at Altenew, we are in love with this rich flora that can be found in the world around us. 

Let’s take a look at the amazing product line up we have with our dancing daisies:

Daisies, with their long, colorful petals, bursting like little rays of sunshine, are known to capture hearts and deliver warm smiles to people all over the world. These beautiful blossoms exude simplicity, innocence, freshness, and happiness! They have been around since 2,200 B.C, popular not only in literature and poetry, but also as a popular girl’s name. It is believed that the daisy gets its name from the Old English Phrase “daes eage,” or “day’s eye”, because of the way it closes its petals in the evening, and blossoms at the first sight of morning. One of the distinct qualities of daisies is that technically they are two flowers in one. The large outer petals make up one flower, and the cluster of tiny petals that form the center “eye” make up another.
