The Love that remains through transformation & change..

Sweet "saudade" (nostalgia) remembered in vintage, and the old school arts of embroidery, sewing, and hand made.

Carmen Butterfly is a little center of metamorphosis with Love & sustainability at its core. Run by perhaps one of the only people left in this world without a smartphone, me - Laura Carmen : ), a vegan gemini with an innate love of variety & wide ranges of imagination.

Eco friendly foundations:
Carmen Butterfly uses primarily re-purposed fabrics, with a preference for romantic vintage threads. I am ok with using leather second hand if such material comes to me thru donation or a chance yard sale, but I…

The Love that remains through transformation & change..

Sweet "saudade" (nostalgia) remembered in vintage, and the old school arts of embroidery, sewing, and hand made.

Carmen Butterfly is a little center of metamorphosis with Love & sustainability at its core. Run by perhaps one of the only people left in this world without a smartphone, me - Laura Carmen : ), a vegan gemini with an innate love of variety & wide ranges of imagination.

Eco friendly foundations:
Carmen Butterfly uses primarily re-purposed fabrics, with a preference for romantic vintage threads. I am ok with using leather second hand if such material comes to me thru donation or a chance yard sale, but I am very conscious about using animal & earth-friendly materials, especially when buying new materials. Carmen Butterfly takes the extra steps like using 100% recycled paper and recycled packing materials. As a one-woman shop I am glad to oversee all the shop processes to ensure quality & sustainability in each step. I am one less person in the rush hour commute; I don't own car - my self-propelled transportation is my own two feet!
My local post office is a small trek away, so shipments are done twice a week. (However, if you need your order asap, please let me know via convo or in the order notes, and I will do my best to get it sent as soon as possible).

I started this Etsy shop in 2009, happy to find a way to support myself and my two girls (my dog and cat), in a creative fashion. Together with my other etsy site, Suga Rey Herbals (www.etsy.com/shop/sugareyherbals) it has persisted, expanded, & transformed past project and pipedream - beginning as "Feng Shui Art", transitioning next into "Engelweiss", and now fluttering on in flight as Carmen Butterfly.
