Many people have asked us where our name Parnassia comes from. It stands for creativity, quality and simplicity and has a few origins:

* It's one of the finest and rarest flowers (above) that grow mainly in dunes - white, small, pretty and quite simple. We like that.
* The Parnassians were a group of 19th-century French poets who strove for exact and faultless workmanship. Suits us well.
* In the Greek mythology Mount Parnassus became known as the home of poetry, music, and learning. Wonderful story, beautiful mountain, great country.
* The Parisian region of Montparnasse became famous at the beginning of the 20th century, when it was the heart of intellectual and artistic life in Paris. It had a huge international attraction.
* Finally, Parnassia is one of the most stylish places along the Dutch coast, positioned on top of the dunes. Perfect place to watch the sunset.
