The Opus Earth Collection

 

For our debut Collection, we’re slowing down to gaze downwards.

 

We’re drawn to the colours, shapes, textures and scents found close to the surface of the earth.

Observing and absorbing these will leave you feeling content and calm.

Dreaming of carrying this feeling of serenity with us elsewhere,

we designed a collection of botanically-inspired items to imitate the collage on the surface of the earth.

 

Each piece in this collection is an invitation to move slowly, a reminder to be present.

 

Love,

Opus Botanical Florist & Design Studio
