About

Hibernacula: An Esoteric Boutique! Celebrating the scientific, the sacred, and the sublime.

Hibernacula: From Latin, meaning “winter dwellings.” In Biology, Hibernacula are the nests and hives, pods, cocoons and subterranean burrows, which protect plants or animals through long periods of dormancy. Though they may appear humble, each holds within it a treasure: a dreaming mind, a living heart, a seed, and the promise of awakening.

The Hibernacula team are artists in the true Renaissance spirit: Scientists, philosophers, mystics, and inventors. More than a shop: we are a living museum, presenting works that excite curiosity and ignite the imagination.
