Mariposa are fascinated by the natural world and it’s beauty and have always found butterflies especially intriguing. Their unique transformation from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly is astounding. Sadly their numbers are declining due to drastic changes in their environment, habitats being destroyed and pollution. They are fragile creatures who struggle to adapt to such changes. Thankfully there are many butterfly conservation organisations and charities devoted to saving them.
We want to preserve their extraordinary physical beauty by creating unique display pieces that will last a lifetime. We hand set and pin each one and mount onto our own collage, lino cut prints, geometric and embroidered designs.
Each butterfly is ethically sourced from conservation projects in South East Asia. We do not buy or sell any endangered species.
