It's the first week of spring! And with that, comes our (not so light) obsession with tulips. Depending on the type of tulip, they can flower anywhere between early March and late May. Either way, we prefer to have them with us 24/7, in our very own hand-illustrated print.
The Tulip Trade
Tulip Mania was a speculative frenzy in 17th-century Holland over the sale of tulip bulbs. The flower was introduced to Europe from Turkey and quickly became popular. By about 1610 a single bulb of a new variety was acceptable as dowry for a bride!
