Origins of Fibre
Born of a belief in the capacity for nature's textures to enhance your living space, Fibre is about celebrating the beauty of nature's materials. Quite simply, we don't like synthetics. Instead, we are passionate about the softness, warmth, insulation and breathability that natural wool provides.
Below is a short video (1:09) about Fibre by Auskin.
Sourced from the high country farms of Australia and New Zealand, Fibre sheepskins are carefully selected for our interior design pieces for their quality and texture. Feel the irresistible softness of Fibre next to your skin... celebrate nature.
Here at the edge of the world, the contrasts and extremes of our natural environment define our lifestyle. From the sky-scraping mountains to the quick-changing weather, living Downunder means being adaptable, innovative and enduring. By utilizing a sustainable framework in the production of Fibre designs, we ensure we take care of the beautiful Pacific backcountry that provides our renewable raw material.
Fibre woolskins are sourced from sheep stations in Australia and New Zealand, chosen for their commitment to sustainable farming practices and high calibre of fleece. Sheepskin is a totally renewable resource and Fibre is committed to sustainable business practices during its processing stages.
Fine natural sheepswool provides a soft, versatile, breathable, insulating and safe raw material that cannot be replicated.
Grown on the verdant hinterlands of Australia and New Zealand, our source material couldn't be more clean, green and natural. Being a natural fiber, sheepswool is a renewable resource that will biodegrade as organic material.
Unlike petroleum-based synthetic materials, sheepswool is silky soft, designed by nature to the highest specification since the beginning of time. Nothing feels quite the same as natural wool. Feel the texture of a Fibre rug beneath your toes and you will know what we are talking about.
The natural crimp and staple of wool fibers provide durability and resilience. Wool can be stretched or crinkled and will bounce back to its original shape. Being moisture and stain repellent, wool provides an optimal interior design material. Furthermore, wool naturally resists static, dirt and dust. Outliving synthetic substitutes that soon look tired and dated, a sheepswool rug will age gracefully over time like a fine wine or an elegant leather sofa.
Sheepswool is naturally warm, responding to and regulating the atmosphere of your living space by absorbing and expelling moisture. With its unique insulation properties, it makes sense to utilize the adaptable, warm fleece of Australian and New Zealand sheepskin for Fibre products.
With its complex structure, nature has designed sheepswool to wick away moisture. This does not occur in plastic-based polyester. Compare an authentic Fibre sheepskin rug with the feel of a 'lookalike' faux woollen rug and you'll notice the difference.
With fire resistance and anti-static properties, wool is the ultimate material for the luxurious range of durable, designer Fibre products. Synthetics, on the other hand, can be highly flammable and may cause minor electric shocks when touched.
The Meaning of Fibre
Designed by nature, Fibre products combine the luxurious texture and tenacity of sheepswool with cutting-edge design to bring you freshness of form and functionality.
Adding softness, warmth and tactile decadence to your living space, Fibre enhances both traditional and contemporary décor.
