Farewell / Tribute flower


In Chinese culture, people hold a memorial ceremony for dead people by burning tributes made of paper. The disappearing tributes seem to go to “another world” to the dead family members. However, paper on fire may produce much air pollution and bring risks of fire disaster.
Farewell is a new flower tribute made of soluble glutinous rice paper. It is designed for Chinese people to remember the dead people, to comfort people alive and at the time to protect environment. A Farewell flower can dissolve in water, so it will “disappear” when getting wet with little harm to the environment.
