Sola wood comes from a tapioca plant root. The tapioca plant is known by many names: cassava, manioc, arrowroot, and sometimes yuca. Cassava (Tapioca) plants grow in tropical climate & are extremely drought resistant. The plant root is shaved, by hand, into varying weights of thin wood. Then, each flower is carefully handmade by cutting and assembling each individual petal. The natural color is ivory.
Here at Honest Rumor, we order premade flowers or make them ourselves. Each flower is handpainted by us.
