From our flower fields in the East of France, to the production of your floral arrangements in our workshop: at Polhine, everything is Made in France for responsible and ethical floral creations.
Sustainable and ethical creations
We develop products that are part of our commitment to create durable objects that also respect our environment. This is why all of Polhine's floral compositions are exclusively created from dried flowers that we produce in our fields in eastern France, or sourced directly from local producers, or that none of our products cannot use plastic for its manufacture.
Reusing shipping boxes, using only recycled packaging or even avoiding the use of unnecessary packaging: we are constantly trying to organize ourselves in the best way in order to be able to shine as a trendy player but also responsible in the world of the house.
Our French flowers
An ethical and responsible floral production
A French manufacture
Our manufacturing workshop
Our workshop and our flower field are located in the Ardennes region. We produce there ecologically more than 90% of the flowers consumed in the year. They are then dried naturally in our dedicated dryers, then packaged to allow us to manufacture all your floral arrangements to order.
Our glassware suppliers are also located in the northern region of France, and our partner producers of dried flowers, in the Ardennes region as well as in the Allier region. Indeed, we systematically prefer to call on partners closest to our workshop to promote short circuits.
Most of the flowers that can be found on the French market - 9 out of 10 - are produced in the Netherlands, but also Kenya or Ecuador, and their transport has a significant environmental impact. For example, a bouquet of 25 roses pollutes as much as a 20km car journey. These flowers often grow in greenhouses that are lit and heated 24 hours a day. In this respect, a lit Dutch rose grown in a greenhouse emits six times more CO2 than a rose grown in Kenya, even though the latter is transported by plane… Many fertilizers and insecticides are also used in the context of flower cultivation, impacting both the health of workers in the sector and the environment.
It is from this alarming ecological observation that the slow flower movement was born. Behind this name, paying homage to the "Slow Food" movement which campaigns for responsible agriculture, hides a movement born in the United States in the mid-2000s, which promotes local and seasonal flowers.
And Polhine takes part in the slow flower movement on a daily basis by guaranteeing you compositions with a minimum use of 90% French flowers, naturally dried for compositions that last for a very long time!
