Tribal butterfly is a unique species created by Sun n Threads to fly from shirts to mugs to phone cases gracing them with its mythical noble patterns. The combination of symbols/indigenous patterns from the Hawaiian, Tahitian, Samoan, Tongan, Fijian & Aborigine cultures shine through the wings like the stained glass in a sacred tepee. Tribal Butterflies are fragile wonders of nature with fairy dust magical qualities that one can't help but be enchanted by.
