Our mission at Moth & Myth is to create items inspired by the natural world. Co-run by artists Redd Walitzki and Kari-Lise Alexander, our work at Moth & Myth 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, artist Redd Walitzki 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-like 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 and Dark Beauty Magazine!
Since then, Moth and Myth has become renowned for producing cruelty-free and vegan designs showcasing the unique bounty of moths and butterflies. In our creations and brand philosophy, we are eco-aware and sustainability focused, continually finding ways to make our products part of the lower impact movement. We also regularly donate profits to various environmental organizations, including the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. In 2020 we raised and donated over $2000 USD to relief efforts for the Australian Fires.
