Hello welcome to the best insect frame shop. Coming from a family of entomologist and artists we have a great foundation and inspiration for our work. Growing up all our lives with art, nature, insects and traveling has made us appreciate the diversity earth has to offer. We have a great selection of seldom seen insects and butterflies from all around the world. 

All of our insects are ethically and humanely sourced after they have passed away naturally in farms, sanctuaries and museums across the country and the world. It is important for us to educate about the the important role that insects play in our world.

We strive to promote nature and incorporate it into our daily lives. Each of our pieces are labeled with their name, origin and meaning.
