Aymara + Cufflinksman to make a difference through fashion

Apr '11
Aymara Designers has partnered with Cufflinksman to create Amazonian Butterfly cufflinks made from real butterfly wings. The butterfly wings used in the cufflink making process come from the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Garden, located in Padre Cocha Iquitos, Peru. The butterflies live and die naturally in a protected sanctuary and their remaining wings are then transformed into jewelry.

All of the products are hand-crafted with the 950 Sterling Silver, rather than the standard 925. In order to support the continuation of several species of Amazonian butterflies, Cufflinksman.com donates a percentage of all sales to the Garden and the Amazon Animal Orphanage.

Aymara is an eco-friendly company dedicated to the protection of the environment and the preservation of animals. Aymara produces boutique collections, ensuring the continuation of each butterfly species by only using materials found in nature. The pattern found in each pair of cufflinks varies slightly due to the intricacies of each individual butterfly, yet maintains uniform color variations according to their species. Essentially Aymara and Cufflinksman.com work with what Nature provides every month, harvesting the wings from creatures whose life span rarely exceeds two weeks.

The donation of sales is used to find new species of endangered butterflies, as well as assist with the daily maintenance of the garden and orphanage. Because a butterfly's life span is so brief, customers have the opportunity to give the butterflies a new transformation—through wearable art. The jewelry line features species ranging from the Rothschildia Hesperus, Morpho Helenor (also simply known as The Blue Morpho), to the Phoebis Argante species. All cufflinks or jewelry purchases will support the continuation of each butterfly species in their natural Peruvian habitat.

Butterfly farms in tropical rainforest areas are becoming an important factor in creating a greater understanding of rainforests and the necessity of their conservation. The Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Garden (PBG) works year round to avoid the depredation of butterflies by providing them sanctuary and care, and by educating the public about their life cycles.
