Val Spicer Designs
We are a high quality foam manufacturer located in Tavistock, Devon supplying directly to wholesalers in the UK, Ireland and Europe. We are a close family business and love nothing more than working together to make our customers happy.
We have a wide range of products available and we are extremely proud of the quality of the foam we make, we all work hard to ensure that it is tested to the highest standards. It is firm, easy to handle and soaks up lots of water, it also has great consistency which is our main priority.
Before floral foam developments, florists would use wire and moss to create more adventurous shapes for their floral designs. This challenging process involved florists using wire to create a shape which was then filled with a moss to help hold the shape before any flowering or decoration.
Val Spicer is still a family run business with several Spicer’s still running the business established in 1995 by Val Spicer. However, we consider the whole of our team to be family.
We believe our team is the secret to our success and we wanted to introduce the individuals who bring you the wide range of floristry products that you have come to rely on.
