The creation of leaves unique crafting process takes 5 weeks. The harvesting of the leaves takes place in March and April, when they are green and their structure is solid and easy to handle.
The leaves are then kept between the pages of big books where the leaves are able to maintain their shape while the paper absorbs the humidity. Once dried completely the leaves are then put into galvanic frames and covered in a thin copper layer, this process solidifies the leaves while preserving their intricate detail.
The final layer is achieved through a pink or yellow gold bath.
