“forest bathing” originates from the japanese practice called shinrin-yoku. shinrin in Japanese means “forest,” and yoku means “bath.” shinrin-yoku means bathing in the forest atmosphere; immersing one’s self in the bountiful mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual benefits of nature.
some of our favourite bluboho collections and pieces are inspired by nature. we take a lot of textures, meanings, and concepts from mother earth and design our pieces with nature in mind. our seedling collection and imprint forest collection are both inspired by the beauty and strength of the natural world, and hold meanings very closely related to immersing one's self in nature and building roots.
