Our mission at Green Floral Crafts is to accent your home with beautiful large vases, decorative branches, and dried flowers made from green, renewable materials like bamboo, mango wood, and natural botanicals. Many of our products are handcrafted exclusively for Green Floral Crafts by artisans and family co-ops in small towns and villages in Southeast Asia. These artisans hand-craft our large floor vases and hand-dry and dye the natural branches, foliage, pods, and flowers according to our designs and high quality standards. Consequently, we are able to offer the widest selection of eco-friendly large and tall vases, preserved flowers, natural branches, and floral accessories on-line.
In our quest to change the way people think about decorating homes, we endeavor to bring together the best of nature with the sophistication of modern design. Our combination vase and floral kits run the gamut from mainstream to eclectic, from modest to elaborate. We use natural botanicals such as tall palm stalks, giant pod leaves, coconut leaf stems, rubber tree leaves, and other abundant resources that grow in the tropics of Southeast Asia. We also work with local growers to provide a variety of domestic Birch, Willow, Manzanita and other branches, flowers and botanicals grown and preserved here in the United States.
In addition to our wide selection of large vases and botanicals, we’ve come up with innovative and elegant ideas for flower arrangements and branch centerpieces, and offer them in the form of predesigned floral craft kits that are easy to put together and striking to behold. Our predesigned kits contain all the floral parts and accessories needed to make up the arrangement, plus step by step easy instructions for the assembly.
Looking for new ways of flower arranging for that upcoming event or wedding? Or simply want to learn how to arrange flowers or branches in a floor vase for an eye-catching home display? Start by choosing your favorite big vase and a predesigned floral craft kit for that particular vase. We hope you’ll be inspired to take your home décor to another level, and also feel good knowing that you’re using natural, renewable, and sustainable materials that not only support entire communities in our source countries, but also the Earth as well.
Green Floral Crafts was founded by Leia J. Tunnaye, a native of Rangoon, Burma. After a professional career of over 20 years in the corporate business world, Leia wanted to start her own business in a more creative and artistic venture. She also had two other criteria in mind; one was to increase environmental awareness by offering products made from sustainable, renewable, and green materials; and the second, to foster the economic growth of village communities in Southeast Asia by promoting handcrafted products made by local artisans and family co-operatives. Leia started this business in the garage of her home in Cupertino, California where she still resides with her family.

If you enter your home address as the "Shipping Address" and you are not home when the package is delivered, the carrier may leave the package at your door if he feels it is a safe location. If you live in an apartment building, deliveries will not usually be left at the door and the carrier will make 2-3 attempts to deliver. The carrier will leave a door tag and it is your responsibility to make arrangements for re-delivery or pick up.
If the package is returned to us due to the fact that you were not home and did not respond to the notices left by the carrier, you will be responsible for the shipping costs charged by the carrier to resend the order to you.
