Meet Mahi Rehan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mahi Rehan.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve had a passion for art since childhood; my parents would enlist me in various sculpting, sewing, knitting, and other art classes when I was young. I loved painting and did that every chance I had during my high school years. I would have loved to continue with my painting but life had other plans for me. For about 20 years I was forced to work in finance to make ends meet. Five years ago, I attended a spiritual retreat where one of the workshop topics was How to Talk to Your Soul. When I got back home I started looking for paintings that would speak to me. After a few years, I began playing around with paper and making origami. I then made my first small wall of paper flowers which my brother and his wife fell in love with, and suggested to make bigger to have as a backdrop at their party. So we did that and I got so many compliments that night that my brother suggested to me to start my own business. And that is how I started my backdrop flower company, Mahi Rehan LLC, which I opened three years ago.

I love what I do and I find myself the happiest when I am creating. I love to be inspired and to inspire others. Life is beautiful and I suggest to everyone to do what they love to do, because life is too short to be busy with things you don’t like. Find anything that inspires you and follow your heart!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Yes, for the most part, everything had progressed quite naturally. Both my creativity and my business evolved and expanded with each day that I immersed myself in making flowers. I’m certain that the nature of my art created a positive environment that contributed to everything working out smoothly.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I create customized flower wall backdrops, ranging as large as 12 ft. height by 32+ ft. width. I currently have more than 4000 SF work space and showroom where clients can come and see the flower walls.

I would say that my work is distinguished for its high level of detail and uniqueness of flowers. With my background in different forms of artwork, I like to incorporate various mediums and materials into the paper to create visual and lighting effects from various angles. I also like to use different physical tools for creating specific shapes, dimensions, and depths within the paper.
