Beija Flor finds its inspiration in special symmetric geometric patterns.
Originating hundreds of years ago and perfected over generations, these decorative patterns aim to provide harmony, balance and inspiration to their audience.
The belief that the universe was created according to a geometric plan has ancient origins.
In sacred geometry, symbolism and sacred meanings are ascribed to certain shapes.
The Flower of Life used in our tiles is found in the early Egyptian culture and is considered one of the most ancient shapes.
The Golden Section Over the years, we have found the mat which was closest in its rectangular proportion to the Golden Section is one of our most popular mats (60cm x 100cm). To make this mat even more pleasing for our customers, we changed its proportions to more closely resemble the Golden Section (60cm x 97cm 97/60=1.617). This mathematical proportion derived from The Fibonacci series, is found all around us in nature and in great artworks. The Golden Section is represented in the Golden Rectangle in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter side is the Golden Section.
