Product Information

Details

Using intricate design and cool colors, this butterfly is sophisticated with its retro leaf and flower patterns. The upper wings are adorned with capiz shell and the flower patterns are painted lightly, complementing the translucent color seen in the natural butterfly. The lower wings are constructed from tin, textured, colored with a burst of turquoise and accented with golds and reds. Great for nearly all decor styles, this piece works great in contemporary, modern, traditional, and farm house settings. The basic frame of the butterfly is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted keeping in mind the reflective qualities in the color of butterflies.

Story Behind the Art:
A gecko lamp started it all. While vacationing in the Philippines in 2003, the founder of Eangee Home spotted the charming piece. A talk with the creator sparked an idea, and upon returning home he and his partners opened a small retail store to sell the lamp and similar items. A few years later they realized that if they shifted their focus to becoming a distributor they could bring a wider variety of unique, sustainably made products to the market. They decided to focus their partnerships with makers in the Philippines since the concept of creating by hand and being detail oriented is part of their cultural tradition. The unique designs they offer are a result of a collaboration of their experience from years in retail, and the creative minds of the artisans with whom they work. They are committed to ensuring that all of their products are eco-friendly and are made of renewable and/or recycled materials with food- based dyes and low-impact finishes.While the business has grown, they've stayed true to their core mission of filling people's homes with sustainable products while supporting the talented makers who create them. To help ensure this, all makers they partner with have access to clean, safe working spaces, living wages, healthcare, continuing education, and quality housing. Eangee Home is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council; a coalition of manufacturers, retailers, and designers dedicated to raising awareness and expanding the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry.
