Meet college professor Yarely, the brain behind Freya’s Floral Company. Her company makes amazing flower crowns that can be worn by humans and animals. She made the first flower was made for her dog, Australian shepherd Freya. And that one was just for the pup, to take fun photos for Instagram. This simple prop for a picture soon turned into a brand. “I received such positive feedback that I decided to begin making crowns for other dogs to spread the love,” Yarely said.
She uses different artificial flowers to create unique and beautiful compositions depending what the customer wants. Many people have fallen in love with her work and purchase flower clowns for their pets from her. Yarely claims that every single crown she makes is unique, even the ones made out of the same selection of flowers having different compositions.
One of the greatest models to rock the flowery accessories is Leonidas, an Instagram star from Chicago. Leo is a Maine Coon cat with close to 150k followers on the social media. He has modeled a selection of crowns from Freya’s Floral Company, gets thousands of likes from people worldwide, admiring the kitten’s stylish look. Leo is actually a big source of inspiration as well as the biggest source of promotion of her crowns.
“Leo’s momager has been a huge source of support helping me promote my business and giving me advice. I am proud to announce that Leo has the biggest Freya’s Floral Co. collection and he is a source of inspiration” she explained. “I’ve often seen photos of dogs in flower crowns, so I thought cats could rock them too!” Leonidas’ “momager” Jane explained how she first decided to put the crowns on her kitty. “Luckily Leo is a very laid back kitty, and lets me put the crowns on his head” she added. Jane confirmed that “people absolutely love seeing Leo in the flower crowns”
“I knew nothing about making crowns so I just winged it. After posting a photo of Freya in her crown I received a lot of positive feedback,” Yarely told. The inspiration for making the individual pieces, is it’s landscapes she sees. “I am a Chicana and Spanish speaker. When I visit Mexico I draw inspiration from the colors and the vibrant energy,” she explained.
It’s quite difficult to make your pet wear the floral crown as they are not that much cooperative. For this, Yarely suggested: “I always recommend bribery! […] I trained Freya to wear crowns on her head.”
