Of all the divine creations, flowers are perhaps bestowed with some special powers. Their mere presence is certain to light up a human face. Flowers have their own language it seems. Their symmetry, colours and fragrance have always intrigued human beings who have been trying to replicate them in various art forms. They are the most simple way to greet people you know or may be total strangers.
Whatever be the occasion or your relation with a person, there’s always a flower that you can present them. Throughout history, flowers have been used as special symbols to communicate an idea or a feeling. Different flowers and even different colours of the same flower are often used to express sentiments.
Roses, for example are used to communicate a myriad of emotions. For example a red rose is used to express feelings of love, while yellow means friendship.
In case, one is not aware of which flower to choose for a particular situation, Bangladesh-based Nasah Petals are here to the rescue. Founded with an idea of bringing uniqueness at a private wedding ceremony, the idea bloomed like a flower itself and turned into a full-fledged company that is revolutionising the floral and home decor market in South East Asia.
A Novel Idea
Nasah Petals started out with the intention of developing the unorganized floral and home décor retail market. It launched its operations from Dhaka, Bangladesh and in less then 3 years, scaled from 1 to 5 outlets. It plans on opening 2 more outlets in the coming 9 months. The company believes in providing high quality to customers and so cultivates the finest quality flowers. Its innovative idea of engraving natural flowers and working with other 100% eco-friendly products is in sync with nature and merges with its aim of think green, become green.
Nasah adds a mesmerizing dramatic touch to the flowers with the help of its content engraving machines. It prints or engraves customised content on roses. The customer’s message is engraved on roses creating a customised experience. It also delivers happiness through its floral themed gift packages including engraved flowers, chocolate bouquets and customized gifts. These customised hampers can be curated as per the customer’s wish. It also offers late night deliveries for special surprising moments. The company loves to give homes an instant makeover with delicate and beautifully designed vases, home decor items, artificial flowers and other garden related services.
The Founding Brothers
The Founder Faiyaaz Hasan was struck with the idea during Nafeez Hasan’s wedding, about 4 years ago. He wanted to assist with the wedding preparations with something new and exciting. During his research, he came across a concept of engraving fresh flowers with content. This immediately had caught his eye which allowed him to further research on the product and industry. What started as a concept of being different in a wedding went onto become their first commercial product for Bangladesh. The brothers since then, have been managing and growing the company.
