ROSEANDTHORN DESIGN was conceived as a response to the environment's wilting health and as a generator of eco-friendly and sustainable practice alternatives for the creation of floral compositions.
ROSEANDTHORN DESIGN'S creator, Armando de Loera, with experience and background in chemistry, discovered the broad variety of toxic and harmful products and additives used in the floral industry. As he recognized this matter as a recurring and growing environmental issue, he took the initiative in changing the process and practices to a new way of doing floral compositions while considering the environmental impacts. Therefore, ROSEANDTHORN DESIGN arose adopting a green philosophy focused on Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, & Recycle to create innovative, artistic, and unique eco-floral designs.
In essence, green and sustainable practices are carefully implemented, maintaining a skillful eye to deliver exclusive fashion-forward designs without compromising functionality and beauty.
We proudly work with local growers and use seasonal blooms allowing us to support the environment and the local economy.
Just as it ‘takes a village to raise a child,’ it takes a village to raise awareness and educate the community and the World, to empower them with knowledge and understanding of how something so beautiful and awe-inspiring can also be deadly and toxic and to offer an alternative to current standard practices.

“My sincere motive behind ROSEANDTHORN DESIGN is because of the strong belief I have in social responsibility and urgency in adopting green practices to change our environment's path”
