Fabric print by Heirloom Fibrecraft: 'Eremophila' - 

Biophilic Design is described as ‘love of nature’ and ‘love for life’. BD connects architecture, the built environment, people and nature through sensory experiences. 

As I research biophilic design examples across the globe I notice the use of two core principles; natural light and greenery (and the health benefits associated to these).  

Heirloom Fibrecraft aims to connect people with nature on a visual and sensory level; through native plant awareness; natural colour sources (Heirloom’s dyes are extracted from over 40 species of plants). On a tactile level; our ecowool felt cushions, silk rugs, sustainable wood furniture and all-natural interior soft furnishings help to achieve our realignment with Nature.
