Dubai, 27 June 2018 – As the exclusive hotel partner of The Flower Carpet, Hotel Amigo, a Rocco Forte Hotel, Brussels, has partnered with haut les coeurs, a local organic florist and Les Précieuses, a local jewellery maker, to create an unforgettable floral experience for guests.

The delicate pink brooch is handmade with love from Belgium and will make every woman wearing it radiate during the summer season.

The Flower Carpet (www.flowercarpet.be) is a biennial initiative by the non-profit organization Tapis de Fleurs de Bruxelles and the City of Brussels. The Flower Carpet has been organized since 1971 and has evolved to become the ultimate point of reference worldwide for events of its kind. Since 2013, it has been alternated with Flowertime (www.flowertime.be), a prestigious floral art event held in Brussels City Hall, to offer flower lovers something to look forward to every year.
Haut les coeurs
Fashion editor and lifestyle journalist for more than fifteen years, Amandine Maziers initiates haut les coeurs in June 2017. Her leitmotiv: to create wild and bucolic bouquets with organic, seasonal and local flowers, only available online or on demand, and delivered by bike in Brussels. From the beginning, haut les coeurs surrounds itself with artists and designers for collaborations, limited editions and events, and with local farmers to reveal in which Belgian field each flower has grown.
