Ancient customs

Although wearing flower crowns has dramatically increased in popularity in the last couple of years, it’s not a novelty. Back in the days, flower crowns used to be worn by the Roman and Greek for example. Their crowns – made from wool and Ivy or Laurel leaves – were a sign of accomplishment and status. The modern incarnation of the flower crown was heavily influenced by hippies in the 1960s. They brought the floral headpieces to the attention of mainstream fashion – meaning the flower crown was back in style.
