These mini collages depict the Ceranchia apollina moth, one of the wild silk species that produce the cocoons we use in our wild silk products. Reminiscent of butterflies that fill curiosity cabinets, but in this case, no creatures are harmed. In fact, every purchase promotes conservation efforts for this endemic species. The pieces are the perfect size for framing and will bring an element of the exquisite natural world into your home.

Seeing this behind me while on camera is calming. There's something biophilic in seeing the textures of the individual cocoons, and I love the colors.
I bought the wall hanging a few months ago. The photos do not do it justice. It’s a charming art piece, beautifully constructed. I could not be happier.
