ABOUT

HEIRLOOM is an Australian textile label of individual, tailored pieces by artist-designer Kim Shipton. Premium natural materials are woven, sewn, embellished and dyed to create elegant scarves and soft furnishings.

Our contemporary style explores the parallels between science and ecology.

Design features include crafted dye extract from native plants grown in our studio nursery and supplied by growers of special climate species to create distinctive colour and natural prints. Production is dependent on seasonal cycles from our natural habitat. Felting, knitting and applique extend the Art Series collections. A majority of our base textile cloth is sourced from hand weavers in Fair Trade community projects. Sustainable production and well being is core to our ethos.

HEIRLOOM collaborates with international artist and crafts people for companion products among our collections.
