Story of Selected Saffron
Since 1981, the family of Laasya Palicha has been importing the best quality Saffron from Spain. Gathering of Saffron is the only brand that has been certified to produce this exotic spice.
Saffron cultivation and use date back more than 3,500 years. Handpicked saffron stigmas, or threads, are delicate and thread-like. They are naturally bright orange-red.
