The flower girls

  • • Puscina is the first sustainable flower farm in Tuscany
  • • It was founded by three sisters to save their family farm
  • • The studio specialises in weddings

Some people are born with a vocation. Others find theirs by chance after experiencing many different things. This is case with sisters Laura and Teresa Cugusi, who worked in many artistic fields before going back to their family farmhouse in Tuscany. There, they established the first flower farm of the area, specialised both in the cultivation of seasonal flowers and in sustainable design, with a focus on weddings. The sisters decided to start a business together, in order to save their family farm that had fallen into disuse. One day, Laura and Teresa made some bunches with French honeysuckle, sainfoin and other wildflowers and sold them to nearby restaurants, they were a hit.
