Are Monsieur Butterfly products fragile? How to store them?

Yes and no. Our products are prepared to be resistant. This allows them to keep their shape and colour under normal use. Nevertheless, the resin can be scratched if rubbed against unsuitable material, and the butterfly can break if subjected to excessive force.

Also, keeping the butterfly away from light and excessive temperatures between wears ensures maximum colour preservation. 

This is why our products are delivered in a custom-made felt pouch. This protects them from scratches and allows them to be carried in your bag. In short, you don't have to worry about anything as long as you take care of them!


Are the butterflies real?

Of course they are! All our butterflies are preserved using the same techniques used by museums to prepare their specimens for display, then prepared to be solidified by a layer of resin. Thanks to this unique technique, butterflies can be preserved indefinitely.


How to adjust the butterfly knot? Is it available in my size?

The neckbows are handmade and are made of Egyptian cotton for optimal quality. The ties are made of metal covered with a thin layer of black plastic.

Thanks to the sliding adjustment system, each bow tie can be adjusted to any neck size, from 28 to 48 cm (greater than most commercially available bow ties).


What size is my butterfly?

The average size of each butterfly is indicated on its page on the website. However, since they are real butterflies, each piece is unique. Its size can vary by a few millimetres, so do not hesitate to tell us after your order if you want, within the limits of available stocks, a particularly large or small butterfly! We will be happy to answer your email sent to contact@monsieurbutterfly.hk

Can I get more information about a brooch/bow tie?

Absolutely! Each product is delivered in a protective felt pouch in which we insert a booklet. The booklet contains information about the butterfly (where it lives, what it feeds on, for example) and a few anecdotes. The booklet also explains the choice of opera associated with the product. Nevertheless, don't hesitate to contact us (contact@monsieurbutterfly.hk) if you too are passionate about the butterfly and we will provide you with all the information we have!
