What are wood flowers? Wood flowers are made from the tapioca root found in Vietnam, India, and Korea. These flowers are each hand crafted with love and cannot be mass produced. When the flowers are raw they are ivory in color and are soft like a balsa wood. The flowers can be dyed any color and some become more fragile after the dying process. Each flower is unique, some are just ivory, others have bark on the edges, certain flowers take dye in a slightly different shade, and some may even have a small hole where there was a knot in the wood. Each flower is perfectly imperfect just like flowers found in nature.
