Isabella Rossellini’s Mama Farm is Hildegaard’s luminous farming partner for the exquisite plants which comprise our extracts. Led by Hildegaard’s founder, Lia Chavez, our contemplative botanists cultivate the splendid gardens at Mama Farm, bringing together artisanal practices at the vanguard of organic and regenerative agriculture, heirloom cultivation, and artistic experimentation to ensure botanicals reach their zenith. There is no use of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, or environmentally harmful fertilizers anywhere on the farm.
Artist Erika Spring — Indie music legend, David Lynch darling, and front woman of synth-pop trio Au Revoir Simone — contributes original sonic compositions, including an effulgent sonic environment for our inaugural collection, “Creation: Internal and External.” Erika is inspired by Hildegard von Bingen’s dialogue with Nature and the divine life forces that surround us.
We collaborate with the iconic photography duo, Ioulex, to create Hildegaard’s visual universe. Ioulex are world renowned for their portraiture and their imaginative approach to the sublime. As friends, our founder, Lia Chavez, and Ioulex have inspired one another for years.
The romantic, botanical-strewn costuming which appears in our campaigns is created by designer Elanur Erdogan. Following her apprenticeship with couture atelier Iris Van Herpen, Elanur has come to be revered for pioneering sustainability methods with experimental materials and fabric manipulations.
