If you think about Puerto Rican flowers, the first one to pop to your head is probably flor de maga. But what if we told you there are 5 more local flowers that are just as enchanting and in need of protecting…. That’s why this Earth Month we’re kicking it off by mixing our eco-conscious message with vibrant art by a local artist.

Puerto Rican artist Cristina Muñoz Laboy @florapalcorazon has dedicated most of her work to creating colorful art inspired by endangered flora.  With us being a tropical fashion brand with a passion for floral prints, this collaboration seemed like a perfect fit.  


Here are 5 endangered flowers illustrated by Cristina:
