How did Eeva come about and what does the name mean?
Eeva was established since 1982. The name was given by the shop's first owner, my mum's eldest sister. It's the name of my cousin who was left to my mother's care for about a year after the tragic death of her father (my mum's brother - Ramli Malek)

We create different kinds of floral arrangements suitable for hotels, palaces, functions, stage decoration and landscaping.
