But have you ever wondered where the story starts with your gifts and what goes into making them?

Shida was created based on one simple fact (and a long-standing obsession with hydrangeas); flowers make us happy. Harvested at the peak of their natural beauty, each Shida bloom is perfectly preserved to feel soft and retain their gorgeous, freshly-cut appearance. Natural and long-lasting, these flowers are a great sustainable alternative. Their longevity greatly reduces waste and transportation costs in comparison with imported cut flowers and, unlike fake flowers, preserved flowers are 100% biodegradable.
