We're thrilled to announce a new collaborative print series with our friends at Broccoli Magazine.
The series limited edition series features three unique cannabis-themed floral arrangements done in the traditional Japanese fashion called 'Ikebana' or 'Kadō'.
Ikebana translates to 'giving life to flowers' and is a rich artistic tradition that dates back to 600 AD. Beginning as offerings at altars, this meticulous craft of botanical arrangement grew in popularity and became a common fixture in Japanese homes. Today, there are thousands of schools throughout Japan & abroad that teach this traditional artistic practice.
This gorgeous photo series was created by Broccoli Magazine and was featured prominently in their iconic first issue (a few copies are still available here). From the start, we were drawn to the soft colors, long flowing elements & calculated arrangement of cannabis with other complimentary plants. Above all, the works are beautiful and show another side to the cannabis species that isn't often witnessed.
