Today I would like to honor all of the magnificent, talented, smart and dynamic women that make flora and henri the unique and wondrous environment and culture that it is, and let's not forget the two supportive, intuitive, deep and loving men who stand shoulder to shoulder with us each day!
Thank you with all my heart! - jane ❤️
Meet the extraordinary team here at flora and henri! Each has shared a bit of wisdom, to take with you on this day.
“It can feel a little strange to still care about beauty while the world is burning. It can feel a little unseemly still to turn toward harmony and light, while cruelty rages all around you. But beauty does, in the end, still belong to you. You don’t have to turn from art and from love; you don’t have to harden your heart against everything good and sweet. Your job isn’t to turn cruel and unfeeling to match the world around you. Rather, it’s to do your best to create a world still worth living in.” Kurt Vonnegut
