After developing a shared passion for the biotech and conservation of fresh flowers, Kathryn Popplestone and Erni Visser created a brand with the vision of transforming one of theworld’s most environmentally wasteful industries into something much more sustainable… in 2017, Ethereal Blooms was born.
The floral duo travelled to Asia to learn some of the most advanced treatments and techniques used to preserve real flowers and keep them garden-fresh for months and years at a time. Kathryn and Erni also studied the traditional art of floral-arrangement.
Kathryn is an academically trained biochemist with fourteen years of innovative entrepreneurial experience in the beauty industry – prior to Ethereal Blooms, she founded ‘Flutter’; a mobile eyelash extensions service.
Erni is a Cambridge educated doctor with extensive experience running a number of elite clinics around the world. Erni brings the intricate processes of surgical procedures to her floristry to create something so delicate and sophisticated.
Their combined journeys have created a uniquely mixed skillset of sciences training, beauty and aesthetic experience, biotech expertise, surgical precision and entrepreneurial drive which fuels the Ethereal Blooms studios.
