We source our beetle wings from a protein farm in Thailand. They eat the beetles as an eco-friendly alternative to meat and the wings of the beetle are their waste.
NO BUTTERFLIES WERE HARMED.
We source our butterflies from aviaries and butterfly farms around the world. The butterflies life span is usually only a couple of weeks to a couple of months so the butterflies are collected after they pass away naturally and we buy the wings. The money that the aviaries get from selling these wings is put into reforestation and preserving the natural flora and fauna.
Our bird feathers are either naturally molted or sourced from other industries where the feathers are their waste.
Where art and nature unite.
