At Printa, you can already admire the eye-catching dry flowers of Arbonika , as we love to decorate the business with them. You can no longer meet them only as a decorative element; you can also buy bouquets of Arbonika dried flowers - exclusively at our physical store on Sebestyén Street in Rumbach. Speaking of which, we thought it would be interesting to learn a little more about the history of Arbonika, the philosophy behind it, and the product range itself. Read on for a short but even more interesting interview with Adrien Jóssa-Pál!

Please tell me a little bit about how you started Arbonika!

With child enthusiasm. I think , I started this in spirit , when I saw drying herbs hanging on wooden beams in my aunt's garden. I found the whole process, the scents and the textures so magical. It was an imprint , that I had forgotten in the meantime, but it was motocrossed and shaped in my subconscious.

I’m a freelance dancer anyway, and dancing is specifically something is the goal. I enjoy every moment, but there is no tangible result. For me, visually beautiful things mean a lot of recharging , when I look at them. I love colors , forms , the use of space , the mobility of an object, a building, nature. It was expressed in me that I wanted to publish my art, put it in a form visible to myself, keep it in my hands.

Flowers and dance met , when the pandemic gave me free time under the same beams I sat, it was summer, and the clouds of lamb were floating above my head, I could smell the same smells as when I was a child and I thought, well, the flowers will be my dances.

I am grateful to have support , I would never have started without my girlfriend Kinga and my husband Bence.

What do you know about dry flowers? For me, it is a very natural and environmentally friendly decoration, the best thing about it is , being durable and easy to compost at the end of its life cycle, but I know little about it n is it a treated product and is it n local or where does it come from?

Very exciting question! It is a really beautiful and natural decoration , the idea of ​​composting is a very good direction. At Arbonika, we also try to bring the zero waste line with our packaging, and we also get our boxes and blisters from local small businesses. For example, when we pack our vases , it is given by the neighboring convenience store , and those who get the syrup in it.

As for the flowers, we are on many legs. At idle, the life of a dried flower begins on the flower fields, harvested and dried, then sent to growers and then to the market. In between, they go through several and other changing processes. There are plants , that are untreated, only dried - such as lavender, for example - there are plants that need preservation. They paint a lot of them and there are a lot of different “industrial” ways to paint.
We , what we buy we try to buy from local primary producers. We imagine a lot of colors , which are unfortunately not at home, we paint our plants with food coloring, for example. We have many flowers , that do not produce at home, we do not get them from home, but from abroad.In addition, on special occasions at the Arbonika you can find some flowers that come straight to the webshop from my aunt's or mamácsk's garden

At Arbonika, not only are dry flowers the theme, you also have your own products and vintage treasures, yet we see a beautiful unity. What are your further plans as the palette expands?

The range of products is united by the emotional world behind it. It has a small playful character in an elegant setting. It can be inserted into a fairytale world which is the core of Mediterranean cottage, Mediterranean glamor combined with a childish color world of Wes Anderson returning here and there. Vintage Treasures was the most exciting and, for me, the most identical serving of flowers, and then they joined our repertoire pretty slowly. I think , what can be placed in this world and driven by internal inspirations , may appear on the webshop, but at the moment I can't say , what is sure to arrive soon. Although I’ve been playing with the thought of flower petal bath balls for a while now, I’ve only made it for myself so far. But who knows?
