LIEFIE + FLORIST

Opus is a Botanical Florist and Design Studio based in Cape Town, and was founded by Marissa Pretorius in 2011. 

A bit about the creative Marissa…she studied photography and graphic design, and worked in the advertising industry for 4 years before realising that she wanted to work for herself while creating with her hands. And we're thankful she pursued her dream! 

What followed from a small office space, and originally experimenting with kokedama, is Opus today. They later moved into floristry and today Opus' main focus is weddings and events, weekly flowers subscriptions for clients as well as online flower deliveries. 

This month Opus celebrates 10 lovely years in the business and if you pop over to their website you can get 20% off site wide on your purchase. Browse their magnificent selection of hanging plants, indoor plants, fresh flower arrangements, and hand tied bouquets or their exciting new range of botanical products. 

Using botanicals as a medium Marissa has begun experimenting with what nature provides. She recently started developing her own botanical products for home and body and aims to create a connection with nature through scent and botanical rituals. ‘My vision for the next 2 years is to expand our online offering and our botanical product range’ and we are so excited to see what more is to come!
