The two have come together to launch a creative initiative, Gosha, which produces made-to-order untraditional arrangements of flowers in Dubai: including fruits, herbs and vegetables.
This next step will be to offer a service where they will come and collect your wasted flowers and bring them to their studio, where they will be dried and rearrange so you can keep them forever. Especially for flowers from special occasions such as for your anniversary or from the wedding, they will rearrange them and also create a new, interesting Gosha-style arrangement to be returned in a glass cylinder.
