“Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe” - Galileo Galilei
Often referred to as the “architecture of the universe”, sacred geometry patterns are all around us. They form the fundamental templates for Life. So it’s with no surprise that patterns of repetitive geometrical shapes have long been used in art and design. We can find beautiful examples everywhere; from the Temple of Osiris in Egypt, to the Assyrian and Persian kingdoms, Roman empire, to old churches in England, Gothic architecture and the ‘Sun of the Alps’ in European Folklore, to Islamic Art, the Forbidden City in China, Indonesian Batik and all the way to current spiritualism.

From the Fibonacci sequence to the Golden Ratio, design patterns can be broken down as a language of numbers (mathematics) that govern our entire visible and invisible world. Sacred geometry is also one of the very few subjects that satisfy both the left and the right brain simultaneously. It satisfies the left brain's desire for logical, sequential and objective data. While satisfying the right brain’s desire for random, intuitive and subjective data. Throughout religions and cultures, this hypnotising aesthetic carries deep symbolic meanings.
Inspired by these themes, Psylo’s designers created our F.O.L Line, representing the 'Flower Of Life'. A repetitive geometrical pattern - resonating those deep meanings of universal patterns. With a touch of ‘distressed’ effect. To give it that graffiti style edge. For those looking for clothing which connect the body and spirit to a greater consciousness - here are our favourite F.O.L styles:
The Everyday F.O.L Dress
Your body will look and feel good in this one. Our Chevy Dress is made from soft organic Cotton Lycra, and you can wear it as a micro dress or tunic. The printed fabric with our F.O.L design is used as panels. Mixed together with the plain fabric panels to create a unique geometrical cut which is figure-hugging. Together with its V-shaped design to flatter your natural shape.
The F.O.L Capris
Bring sacred geometry symbolism to your practice. These ¾ yoga leggings styles are both made from our soft organic cotton lycra. So you can feel and look good on your mat. The Short Leggings version comes in a unique low-crotch cut for extra comfort. On the F.O.L Skirted Leggings the legs are made with plain fabric, and the print accentuates the attached skirt.
The F.O.L Essential Tee
Take sacred symbolism on your everyday with our F.O.L Tee. Each new Psylo line is not complete without this one - the classic, tried-and-tested, essential Tee. Like all our men’s tops styles, this one is made from our soft fabric, mix of sustainable bamboo and organic cotton. So it’s light and breathable. Printed all-over with the F.O.L design to connect your everyday to the greater patterns of life.
Top It With F.O.L Hat
For those who love accessorizing. Follow your scared style, or add a touch of sacred geometry to your look with our Beanie - printed with the F.O.L design. It’s made from double-knitted fabric, giving it volume, while keeping your head cozy. A great addition for any everyday look.
