Ediflorial is a floral design studio based in occupied indigenous territory: Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Owner-designer Amber Newman has worked two seasons flower farming in California and Vermont as part of her one year organic farm tour around the country. She uses mostly locally grown, chemical-free flowers so that designs are innovative, seasonal and sustainable.
Ediflorial’s priority is to support nearby farmers and small businesses in an effort to build a stronger community and healthier planet for all.
Amber identifies as someone who benefits from straight, cis, white, able-bodied, middle class privilege but works in Queer and anti-racist circles trying to break down systems of oppression–yes, even through flowers.
i deeply believe that Flowers are magical.
in one Blossom, they hold the Beauty and the Secrets
of the entire Universe.
thus, i believe they enhance our lives–
both daily and in celebrations.
one Blossom is a story
from a Seed being buried in the Darkness, being nourished
by unseen Rain and Sun,
to Sprout breaking through–
a process of growth and expansion until
it finally bursts into Bloom, to exclaim itself
before being recycled to start this process all over again.
and again. and again.
