I stumbled upon this video about Bulgarian rose oil production the other week. It made me think about how little I know about the production of many things that are part of my daily life. And if it weren't for the "Made in China" tag I wouldn't know where anything came from either.
I am even subject to this with flowers, my own art medium. I can't tell you how many times I have opened bundles of daisies, roses, lilies, snapdragons etc. and not even looked to see where they were grown. Those flowers started somewhere, by someone and wouldn't it enrich the bouquet I create with them if I knew that back story?
