about posy rae

Posy Rae is a Chicago based paper floral company that creates realistic flowers out of Italian Crepe Paper. Founded by Naomi Skaggs, an artist and designer, Posy Rae was established as a way for Naomi to connect her need to create art with her desire to make something that brings beauty and joy to people.

Naomi's love of flowers began at an early age. As a girl she would wander through the gardens in her neighborhood picking flowers and making arrangements to give to family and friends. It was the giving of those arrangements and the smiles on her loved ones faces that inspired her most. The personal connection between creating something and sharing it with another individual is Naomi's motivation for Posy Rae. Her small apartment in Chicago has become a design studio and is full of paper, scraps, glue and a collection of second hand vases filled with paper flowers. Now that Naomi has Posy Rae she can't stop creating! And she hopes her paper flowers will bring joy and beauty to all who see them.
