Florian, a singular word that conveys so much. The origin of the word Florian refers to flowers or flowering, it also once represented the color yellow. A rich history is attributed to St. Florian the Patron Saint of Firefighters. One word that encompasses {service to others, attentiveness, simplicity, and fortitude}. It was a naturally fitting name for an endeavor of the same. Florian was born out of the distinct connections of a blended background rooted within its owner. It is an entrepreneurial adventure started by a mother and daughter team.
