About Luminous Matter

Luminous Matter is a boutique for the spirit.

It is inspired by the audaciously bold and clarion visions of medieval mystic and contemporary muse, Hildegard von Bingen. Hildegard was a remarkable woman, and a champion of the sacred feminine in her poetry, prose, and music.

Our products are designed for modern mystics who cherish her words and ideas, and who also love stylish, beautiful, and inspired goods! 

Because we believe you, too, are luminous matter, ready to embody that bold, audacious, and spirited vision of yourself.
