Bloommerce was founded in January 2018 by Nastaran Sadeghi. After a few years of voluntarily social and cultural activities for her community in Canada, such as guiding newcomers, sharing information, setting up many events, managing different groups in social media to support her community, she decided to use this opportunity and collect all the businesses of Iranians and provide a unique searching way for her community to find their required services easily and quickly. The most important purpose of Bloommerce is to support start-up and home-based businesses and let business owners introduce their services economically.
Bloommerce is the short form of two words: BLOOM means to grow or develop successfully and to produce flowers, and COMMERCE means social dealings and the activity of buying and selling. So, BLOOMMERCE means to “GROW YOUR BUSINESS”
Since the meaning of BLOOMMERCE is to grow your business, we decided to use the CROCUS FLOWER which is one of the first flowers to emerge in the spring representing growing, blooming, and developing. The crocus is a symbol of Cheerfulness, Gladness, Youthfulness, Mirthfulness, and Glee. PURPLE CROCUS represents Dignity, Pride and Success, so we chose this beautiful flower as the symbol of our purpose. This flower is known as “Saffron” by Iranians. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus, which is grown commercially in many countries, especially in Iran. The crocus flower’s message is one of joy and cheerfulness that celebrates the return of spring.
GREEN and PURPLE were the two colours matched with the purpose of BLOOMMERCE the most. GREEN, the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, and fertility. Green is also traditionally associated with money and finances. PURPLE Combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Associated with wisdom, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
