All the Christmas trees cov­ered with flocking and ROBIN® iced christmas trees we de­liver come from our own Christmas tree cul­ti­va­tion.

The flocked Christmas tree.

The dif­ferent sorts of flocking.

The flocking must be adapted to the use of the Christmas trees cov­ered with flocking.
This is why we offer dif­ferent types of flocking:

  • Stan­dard flocking :

  • Fire-re­tar­dant flocking for an in­door use

  • Water-re­pel­lent flocking for an out­door use

Nat­ural Christmas trees cov­ered with flocking

Christmas trees are cov­ered with flocking thanks to the spraying in al­ter­nate flows of cel­lu­lose fibers and water-sol­uble glue.                   

The cel­lu­lose fibers used for the flocking of our Christmas trees are made from cotton. Thanks to the pro­cess and the spe­cial "out­door" glues used for this flocking (the glues have awater-re­pelling ef­fect), the Christmas tree cov­ered with flocking is more hu­midity- or rain re­sis­tant.

The Robin® iced Christmas tree


The ROBIN® iced Christmas tree.                     


The ROBIN® iced Christmas tree is a nat­ural cut Christmas tree cov­ered with a white (or coloured) resin which is sprayed, and a light veil of flocking on top of it (or of the same colour of the resin for coloured trees).

Detail of a branch of a ROBIN® iced Christmas treeOn the ROBIN® iced Christmas tree, the needles and branches are per­fectly cov­ered in pure white (or colour) and the needles re­main single con­trary to flocking, or the whole branch, and the needles are en­cluded in a mass of cotton fiber which masks the needles and the branches.
The ROBIN® iced Christmas tree is per­fectly white (or coloured) while keeping a nat­ural aspect com­pared to the tree cov­ered with flocking where the flocking will hide the de­tails of the needles and branches. What is more, the light veil of flocking on top of the resin looks like a few fresh snowflakes on the needles.
