The butterfly is a great creature for metaphors, especially ones that embrace positive changes and growth, so it comes as no surprise that these butterfly wing scarves exist. For some, they may serve as a powerful symbol of the change they are currently going through or have already gone through. For others, the butterfly wing scarves may simply be a stunning accessory piece.

Designed by El Costurero Real, the butterfly wing scarves are incredibly realistic. So realistic that when worn unfolded, they look as though they give the wearer real wings. Although printed on material that resembles chiffon, the "wings" are actually 100% cotton. Due to the nature of these designs, each scarf also has a wire sewn into the front of the wings for use in dance.
