Anyone who has children, and has tried to teach them the joy of and respect for nature so they can recognize the different elements in nature has had need for a herbarium. A simple herbarium can be a book with illustrations of different leaves or flowers in nature. Beautiful books, sometimes produced ​​by great designers, are rarely used due to their value in mint condition, and are hidden away in the libraries.
This herbarium is different: it is alive and the leaves are sculptures that you can display in any room of the house. Each leaf is different, it has the natural shape and it is made from the wood of the corresponding tree. This ‘living’ wood enables one to have a new relationship with the plant through the different scents. A collection of different leaves enables you to have the pleasure of a set of natural perfumes
