About

Welcome to CarmenButterfly, a shop of original handmade clothing & accessories, special items for home, and vintage treasures.

I'm also a lay herbalist, and have a wellness shop here on Etsy. For healthy, fun goodies check out: www.etsy.com/shop/SugaReyHerbals.com

Carmen Butterfly aims to offer uplifting, sustainably-made items, to inspire well-being & happiness, as well as make & post clothes that look and feel good. Special attention is given to versatility & adjustablity to suit many shapes and styles. I am a Lord of the Rings and Star Wars super geek, and I believe that dressing-up is for more than once a year, and often function with elf, jedi, sci-fi, or mythological themes swirling in my imagination. I am a lover of "The Great Story": the histories and energies that make everything one…

I believe in sustainability: I'm vegan, I don't own car, and I use mainly recycled materials, and purchase supplies through Etsy & secondhand shops. I love vintage & recreating for this reason - they give items a new chance to be used and loved, as well as having a special charm that can rarely be found in the plastic-wrapped - and often sweat-shop produced - aisles of department stores.

The shop photo is of my grandmother Carmen. I didn't ever get to meet her as she passed away before I was born, yet I feel a deep affinity for her. She was once the Beauty Queen of Lima, Peru, and everyone that knew her says she had a heart of gold. She is the inspiration of Carmen Butterfly.

Happy Year of the Sheep..and happy year of the Monkey in advance!
