tasty flowers: tags & corsages om op te eten

the motto food = fashion has inspired the designers couple, marjolein wintjes and eric meursing, to create tasty flowers: edible nametags and corsages, which are a novel view on nametags and/or corsages.

tasty flowers are handmade eat.corsages of edible paper. this paper is made out of dried vegetables, fruit, herbs, etc.  de culinaire werkplaats produces all kinds of edible paper in-house, ranging from oranges to red beets.

the corsages can be attached to all sorts of nametags. tasty flowers are suitable for weddings or extraordinary product launches.

the corsages are not in stock. tasty flowers are tailormade and therefore only made when ordered.
