All about Licheni decor or Cladonia Stellaris

05/04/2021
by Admin AFO

Reindeer lichen is harvested and produced by artisans in the field and is used in various ways in the floral and art industry.

The particularly unique, rich and untouched nature of the island has a significant significance for the company in the form of lichen called Reindeer Lichen (Cladonia Stellaris). The company's patrimony in terms of muscle use stretches over 80 years; its owner is the third generation entrepreneur in the muscle sector. All phases of the entire production chain are completed manually.

The term "muscle" is commonly used to describe this material, but it is an incorrect term from a scientific perspective. Reindeer lichen is the right term and is botanically called Cladonia Stellaris. Lichen is made up of fungi, algae and grows without roots or leaves.

Reindeer lichen grows only in environments where the air is free or limited by pollution. The annual rate of production for commercial use is limited, so it is a very rare species. The lichen can grow up to 18cm - 25cm, but it takes about 25 years to get it. Under optimal conditions, lichen grows at a rate of 3-5 mm per year.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IT AND THE PRESERVED FLOWER?
Preserved flowers typically use glycerin and preservatives to dry the material and are estimated to retain color and texture for about 3-5 years. Reindeer lichen, on the other hand, resists and retains its color indefinitely due to the porous and hygroscopic structure of the species. Unlike canned flowers, reindeer lichen is able to remain soft by absorbing the surrounding moisture.

IS IT ALIVE?
Removing reindeer lichen from its habitat or its natural conservation causes the loss of growth capacity. However, unlike other preserved plants, it maintains its ability to remove substances and deodorize the atmosphere, due to its hygroscopic nature. Left alone, reindeer lichen will go through a soft and hard texture phase throughout the season, depending on the surrounding humidity.

COLOR?
The natural color of reindeer lichen is light gray, but it is colored using different natural pigments during preservation. The color paint is completely safe and compliant with purity with German BfR IX, European Resolution AP (89) 1, EU Directive 94/62 / EC and CONEG.

Some parts of the lichen may not have uniform colors. This is due to the lichen that has been exposed to the soil and sunlight while in its natural habitat.

SHOULD IT BE WET?
Canned reindeer lichen does not grow, so watering is not necessary. The hygroscopic property allows the lichen to remain soft using the surrounding moisture. Direct contact with water must be avoided at all times. When the preserved reindeer lichen comes in contact with water, the lichen will lose its hygroscopic properties and harden.

DOES IT HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REMOVE DUST PARTICLES?
Dust particles adhere to surfaces due to static electricity, but reindeer lichen is by nature anti-static, preventing dust from adhering. Dust deposition as a result of gravitational forces can be removed with an air blower.


CAN IT BE USED AS A DEHUMIDIFIER / HUMIDIFIER?
It is not as efficient as a conventional electric dehumidifier / humidifier. Preserved reindeer lichen absorbs or emits moisture from the surroundings, but with limits. Continuous removal or exudation of moisture is not possible.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THEM IN LARGE QUANTITIES AS INTERIOR DECOR?
In addition to natural aesthetics, preserved reindeer lichen is flame retardant, has the ability to reduce ambient noise levels, deodorize odors by removing harmful substances such as ammonia, acetaldehyde and formaldehyde.

CAN MOLD GROW IN / OR ON THIS MATERIAL?
Mold and insects cannot grow or form a habitat in or on reindeer lichen preserved due to salinity.

WHAT IS THE SMELL OF LICHENS?
The scent is a combination of Cladonia Stellaris (reindeer lichen), minerals and natural pigments.

About Valentines Day and roses

04/02/2021
by Admin AFO

But why is that? What do roses and Valentine have in common? And what kind of roses should you stock up on to prepare for a successful Valentines? In this article, we will delve into the fascinating history of roses and Valentine's Day.

Valentines Day story

The first Valentine's Day has been celebrated since 496. There are many legends and myths around, but we will probably never discover the exact story behind the origin of Valentine's Day. What we do know is that Valentine's Day, as we know it, became popular through the Golden Legend, a book that was composed in the fourteenth century about Christian holidays and celebrations. Nowadays we celebrate love in general on February 14th, and not just "anonymous love". Lovers, couples and even friends express their love for each other with cards, gifts and flowers.

So ... What's wrong with roses and Valentine?

Offering roses for Valentine's Day probably dates back to the late 17th century, when King Charles II of Sweden went on a trip to Persia. In Persia, Charles discovered the art of communicating with flowers, without using words. When he introduced this art to Europe, it became a fashion, and flower lists and their meanings became widespread. A yellow carnation, for example, meant that the recipient had disappointed its sender. And the red rose, of course, was the symbol of love. And where did the Rose get this symbolic meaning? For this, we must go back in time and further. In Greek mythology, where the Rose was associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and her boyfriend Adonis. When Adonis was killed by a wild boar, Aphrodite wept bitterly over her death. It is said that the rose bushes grew where her tears and Adonis' blood touched the ground. Fortunately, the story has a happy ending (in part): Adonis was brought back to life by Zeus. But because Persephone, the goddess of fertility and the dead, also asked for love, it was decided that Adonis would spend six months in her world for every six months spent with Aphrodite.

Brexit procedure

17/12/2020
by Admin AFO

Due to the factual exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union, all trade procedures in and into the United Kingdom will be carried out according to the criteria of extra-Community import-export. Consequently, starting with December 21, 2020, the shipments to the United Kingdom will be suspended and will be resumed on 04.01.2021 according to the new criteria. Shipments to the United Kingdom will only be possible to legal entities (companies). We partially reproduce below the press release of the transport company

Export to United Kingdom

1. Starting with December 21, 2020 - The 2303 Classic International Road Service to Great Britain will no longer be a public service and will no longer exist in the DPD public offer.


2. Tariff for customs formalities (export customs declaration leaving the EU + import customs declaration in the UK) - 50 RON / package. They will be automatically invoiced from SLD for each package shipped to the UK.

3. After Brex, each consignment to the UK must necessarily be accompanied by a commercial invoice or pro-forma invoice in 3 copies issued by the sender to recipient package.

Commercial invoice - when the contents of the package are subject to sale and the Pro-Forma invoice is if the contents of the package are not subject to sale.

The invoice or Pro-forma must contain the following mandatory data:

- Invoice number

- Invoice date

- Recipient data - company name, address, including local and country postcode, contact person, telephone and e-mail (information is required and must be correct - in the absence of batch DPD UK will not be able to contact the recipient for payment customs duties)

- Sender details - company name, address, including local and country postal code, contact person, telephone and e-mail

- Full description of the content by articles, their quantity and value, as well as the currency (EUR, USD, GBP)

- EORI number of the consignor and consignee in the United Kingdom

the VAT number of the recipient in the United Kingdom

4. Invoices must be issued in 3 copies and must be placed outside the package in a plastic envelope for documents, next to the envelope with the awb. A copy remains for DPD RO for further processing of documents. The other 2 copies remain in the envelope outside the package until the final destination.

5. No invoice is required for document parcels, and there are no additional fees and taxes in the UK. For content other than "Documents", there are taxes and duties under UK customs legislation (VAT is paid for each package - except documents - regardless of its value).

6. The customer is fully responsible for the documents and data completed in the accompanying invoices. These data are very important for the customs clearance and delivery of the package. If information is missing from the invoice, we will be charged with penalties that we will re-invoice to customers, and the package will be automatically returned to the sender without any possibility of additional information. Mandatory details and all conditions for sending parcels to the UK will be visible on our website.

7. In case of lack of accompanying documents or invoice data, the package will be returned immediately from Chronopost FR (the place where the export customs will be made) to DPD Romania without the option to add the missing data. The return will be invoiced according to the initial awb rate.

8. It is forbidden to send to the United Kingdom packages with gift content, packaged or unpackaged food, liquids, alcohol, cigarettes and all objects and substances from the list of prohibited content published on the website of DPD Romania.

9. All fees and taxes will be collected from the recipient by DPD UK through a special customer portal. DPD UK or the HMRC customs agency (if the consignee has the special HMRC account for deferred VAT payment in the UK) will send an e-mail to the consignee for the collection of customs duties (therefore it is mandatory to collect the consignee's e-mail for each package in Great Britain).

10. After payment of all taxes and duties, the package will be cleared and placed on the delivery network to the warehouse of destination in the United Kingdom. If taxes and duties are not paide within 10 days from the date of collection, the package will be returned to the sender with the same DPD awb.

12. The UK Collection Request service is not available.

13. It is extremely important and mandatory to write and enter the correct e-mail address of the recipient for each shipment to the UK in the SLD system and also in the package invoice.

Christmas, one of the symbols of Christmas

What are the main advantages of artificial flowers?

11/09/2020
by Admin AFO

It is said that when you want to offer a flower it is good to focus on a natural flower. Natural flowers have the advantage of a pleasant scent and have a very pleasant appearance. Unfortunately, natural flowers wither and quickly turn into a simple memory.

If you want to give a lasting gift, artificial flowers can be a great alternative. It is true that a lot of counter-arguments have emerged around them, such as the smell of plastic, the rough putting in the work or the lack of smell. However, before you say no, it's a good idea to look at modern artificial flowers.

Modern artificial flowers, faithful children of natural flowers

The artificial flowers created in recent years perfectly mimic natural flowers. Often, even a person familiar with the floral field finds it difficult to differentiate an artificial flower from a natural one.

They are made of materials that perfectly mimic the natural structure of flowers and faithfully copy every detail. In addition, they have a lot of advantages:

  • They have an attractive price. Most often, artificial flowers are cheaper than natural ones;
  • They are much more resistant over time. A bridal bouquet of artificial flowers can be kept forever, without the risk of withering or breaking;
  • They do not depend on climatic conditions;
  • They can be easily transported in absolutely any conditions;
  • They don't need attention. If you have an artificial flower in the house, you can go on holiday without any problems, without risking it withering.

Artificial flowers can therefore be the perfect gift and can be the ideal accessory for arranging rooms at home. If you are a person who does not want additional responsibilities, you can take them into account.
