Heirloom Fibrecraft is a considered collection of finely handcrafted furniture and interior design accessories.
Principal, Kim Shipton combines her passion for the sensory with artistic and Biophilic design principles to present interior ‘keepsakes’ in luxury wood, ceramics, glass and textiles. The collection is often sourced from global, independent brands with distinctive stories and imported by Heirloom Fibrecraft.
Our established ethos of twenty years, in sustainable design and retail, is to encourage people to build surroundings that inspire them daily and enhance their wellbeing with minimal impact to the Environment. Our quest is to source functional art pieces that add value to both the home and the individual’s lifestyle.
Kim’s background emerges from a career in the construction industry with formal studies in interior design and fine art. The Heirloom Fibrecraft brand commenced in 2010, as an Australian textile art label comprising imported natural and hand woven fabrics that were hand dyed using native plant extract and produced into accessories that supplied specialty boutiques, art galleries and Sydney Opera events. Today, Kim continues to channel her creativity into nature inspired works, photography and digital art which form a portion of Heirloom Fibrecraft’s soft furnishings collection.
