Change your perspective while restoring your space and the world. Taking influence from nature and an appreciation for the integrity of the natural world around us, the Embodied Beauty collection shows that great design doesn't have to compromise on the pursuit of sustainability. The carbon negative styles offered are marked with [-CO2].
We are on a mission to lower the carbon footprint of your space and to do this, we are transforming our global backing systems with the launch of our new CQuest™ backings.
Guided by materials science, we’ve added new thinking and innovative new materials to make backings with a much lower carbon footprint. First, we added new bio-based materials and more recycled content to our backings. Then, we measured how these materials influence the carbon footprint. These new materials, measured on a stand-alone basis, are net carbon negative – reducing our carbon footprint and resulting in carbon negative backings.
Ikigai, a “reason for being,” is a Japanese concept related to well-being and happiness through connection with others and with nature. Ikigai teaches appreciation for simplicity and acceptance of what is impermanent.
Inspired by these principles, Embodied Beauty focuses on bringing new life to the expected. The collection embraces calm, muted grays in warm and cool tones alongside natural colours for added dimension. Simple Sash™, Sashiko Stitch™, and Vintage Kimono™ evoke the delicate beauty of antique textiles and make ideal companions for Zen Stitch™ with its irregular gridded texture. Geisha Gather™ is a modern, woven graphic that invites you to create your own zen-like patterns. Tokyo Texture™ and Shishu Stitch™ take notes from nature with organic texture and soft, subtle striae.
