Our goal is to honor the deceased through living adornment. Every piece is made with intention and we take great care to source responsibly. It is our goal to honor nature not take advantage of it.
Most of our bones are foraged, come from road kill or salvaged components that would be used as waste. We have a network of collectors from people who work for the department of transportation to local foragers. We process most of our specimens ourselves and teach classes on processing so others can collect sustainably and ethically.
When foraging for animal specimens and/or plant specimens we take great care to do so responsibly; following all laws. Anything outsourced is done so within our ethics policy.
Our taxidermy specimens come from still born animals, discarded scraps that will otherwise be disposed of, small local animal shops whose animals have met an early passing and animal control as a part of wildlife management.
Our insect specimens come from a third party who collects insects post death from pavilions and nature sanctuaries. And specimens we have found on nature hikes.
During growing season we source a large number of our floral from local Colorado flower farms, and we try to reuse absolutely everything.
It is our goal to run an ethical and sustainable business that maintains transparency. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact us via our contact form on the website.
