Applecross Croft • HeartStorm design inspired by the Scottish Highlands for our exclusive gift collections.


Love – one word. So powerful a word that it encompasses the romantic, the platonic, the familial. Love can overcome our fear of the unknown, stimulate our desire for adventure, drive us to give ourselves completely to another. Love for self, love of other, love for place, community, nature. It represents the thrill of a greater sharing, the leaping pleasure and searing pain that come with the peaks and troughs of emotion.

In the meeting of land and sea, in the appearance of real or imagined shorelines and boundaries, the designs woven into HeartStorm represent the meeting of hearts, minds and bodies, and the cardinal points of our emotions. The intensity of love as it ebbs and flows between and within us is mirrored by the rising and falling of the imagery.

With our hearts we navigate our lives, through our heartstorms we come to know ourselves, to understand the great leviathans, formidable and mysterious, swimming within the unexplored depths of each of us.

The seas of our heartstorms are crashing, billowing breakers of desire, and the gentle, lapping caress of the tide. The power and ferocity, the calm, still mirror of the heart.
