On wellness rituals and why we need them

When it comes to wellness, less is more. Our wellness rituals are simple and pure. 

At red flower, we believe in the importance of creating the finest quality products in limited quantities.  It’s vital to discover beauty globally to have truly transformative offerings, but it’s also vital to spend the time on our customers so they, too, learn to luxuriate in the sensuous delights that come from using a great product. And our specially crafted  “hero products” are developed with the company’s philosophy of engaging in sustainable and environmentally friendly practices instead of mass-produced overconsumption.

Symbolism and design in Japan

I lived in Japan for many years; it is my home away from home. A Japanese aesthetic deeply informs much of red flower’s feel. In creating red flower japan, our first treatment collection, the design and graphics express the deep spiritual, emotional, symbolic, health, and ceremonial aspects of traditional onsen bathing.  I have been to more than a hundred onsen, studied tea ceremony and ikebana, worked with the best graphic designers at shiseido and endlessly wandered the streets of tokyo, everywhere absorbing the beauty and power of “Japan”.
