IKEBANA a house of floral fiesta

Named after the art Ikebana, Ikebana is a concern for floral services, contracting and landscaping. Established in 1992, Ikebana has been catering its floral services to anyone with a passion for beauty and of course, flowers. Ikebana's products are the wonderful bouquets and wreaths that grace almost all the functions that take place at the national level, and which has included mega events like SAARC conference, SAF Games, ICC Cricket Tournament, and visits of heads of states. If you have a wedding, birthday or any other gala coming up then you too can ask for its services in order to add grandeur to your celebration.

Ikebana's new office and sales center was inaugurated in Banani last Sunday. The artistic interior decoration with beautiful wood shelves, fountain, tiled floor and woodcarvings have added focus to their floral collection. Even the exterior of the store upholds a unique look with a triangular entrance and 'Ikebana' inscribed in green.

Garlands and bouquets made from dry flowers have gained prominence in this new display center. Simply eye-catching, these flower arrangements would fascinate any one with a sense of beauty. Prices will vary from tk.75 to tk.10000. Interesting objects like bamboo, peels of peanuts, maize, and sticks of chirota and miscellaneous others have been used in the floral arrangements besides ingredients like fabric, net, ribbon and cane.

Ikebana is a joint venture of Nilufar Farooq and Inu Shamsuddin. Nilufar Farooq is the managing director and the creative mind behind Ikebana. Under her supervision, her staffs give birth to these gorgeous floral decorations. N. Farooq completed her course on the arts of Ikebana from the eminent Ohara School of Ikebana, Osaka, Japan.

In the upcoming Eid, you too can purchase a garland from Ikebana to add beauty to your home; the collection is purely superb. Address: Ikebana, House # 57, Road # 6, Block # C, Banani.
