Belgium, Brussels, 13 August 2022
Realisation of the flower carpet on the main square of Brussels, for its 50th anniversary and its 22nd edition, the Brussels Flower Carpet is going back to its roots and reinventing the first visual of 1971. For the 2022 carpet, 464 m2 of begonias, the equivalent of 140,000 flowers, and 563 m2 of dahlias, the equivalent of 225,000 flowers, were needed. It also required 508 m2 of bark dyed with all-natural, eco-friendly, plant-based dyes, and nearly 88 m2 of grass rolls to hem the edges of the carpet.
The exhibition is on display for three days.
