Here at The Flower Wall company, we have been in China a long time so we knew sooner or later our designs would be copied. That started a while ago but now we have moved to the next level…our photo’s being used on Alibaba. We knew it would happen so have already taken the appropriate action to be removed (and thanks to Alibaba being a listed company overseas, they now take this seriously!)
We want all our past and potential clients to know, we don’t sell on Alibaba, ever, so if you see one of our images being used, we can 100% guarantee you will not be getting an amazing high quality wall. If you don’t buy from us directly, you are being mis sold a product.
Here’s a recent listing on Alibaba by a company in Yiwu using our images, their flower wall panel is made up of low quality polyester flowers on a light weight and thin backing panel, which is a million miles away from the walls we create. We deal with flowers day in day out so can instantly recognise the polyester low end pieces that don’t meet the grade with us.
Our Miss Spring wall (in the bottom and right hand side pic in the collage) is made up of 12 different shades, species and sizes of peony and rose, and the Alibaba imitation has three colours of the same polyester rose. Their panel also has around 60 flowers per piece, where as ours have on average 110 – 130 blooms (we really hate seeing gaps on flower walls!), arranged in a style that has been designed by us. We also know from market research the backing panel material is inferior to the tough, durable mesh we use and certainly not built to last.
Our philosophy at The Flower Wall Company is to provide western style and colour flower walls that are an amazing quality so they can be reused for years to come by rental companies, wedding planners and venues. We have always said we are not a large factory in a Chinese province with unskilled workers simply putting flowers on panels, we have a background in floral design and make sure every panel is simply perfect before sending it out. Quality is our end goal, and with feedback from our clients like “it exceeded my expectations”…we know we are on the right track.
We have never tried to be “cheap” or “expensive”, but we aim to be excellent value for money. The old addage “you get what you pay for” is certainly still true when it comes to flower walls. If you are unsure if the floral back drop you’ve seen is a The Flower Wall Company original, contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to let you know.
