A Menagrerie of Moths

Our mission at Moth & Myth is to create items inspired by the natural world. Our work will empower other makers to produce their own beautiful creations. Through sustainable and cruelty free products, we hope to build a world of unique objects which inspire and delight others.

In 2015, Redd created an assortment of paper butterflies to use for a painting reference. It was impossible to find realistic artificial butterflies for this purpose, and real specimens would have been too fragile, or did not appear life-life enough. Other artists and crafters responded so strongly to these paper-moths and butterflies that Redd began to offer them for sale for others to use and enjoy as well. They have now been featured in a variety of media outlets, including Martha Stewart Living Magazine!

Since then, Moth and Myth has become renowned for producing cruelty-free and vegan designs showcasing the unique bounty of moths and butterflies. Now co-run by Redd Walitzki and Kari-Lise Alexander, the brand will continue to grow and offer a variety of beautiful items inspired by the natural world!

A note about Lasercut Items:

The Lasercutter uses a focused beam of light to cut through the paper, creating one of the most precise cuts possible. However since it is burning through the material, sometimes there may be slight burning visible near the edges of the print. Each piece is checked carefully to make sure it meets a high standard of excellence, but small burn marks and a smoky burnt paper aroma are a natural part of the process. We do not offer refunds for slight laser burn marks, or print variations as these are an inherent part of this manufacturing process.

Sometimes the lasercut pieces may have a slight smoky smell for a few days (especially right after they're removed from their packaging). This is from where the laser has burned them, we ship from a smoke-free home. But if you are extremely sensitive of allergic to smoke, lasercut items may not be right for you.
