What is Ikebana International?

Ikebana International is a non-profit, cultural organization dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of the art of ikebana. Our goal is to strengthen relationships among teachers and students of ikebana with a deeper purpose of establishing relationships among all peoples of the world through their mutual love of nature. The late Ellen Gordon Allen founded the organization in 1956 with the motto: Friendship through Flowers. Today, there are 161 chapters of Ikebana International in over 50 countries/areas with a membership of approximately 7,600 persons
