HERESY x Arktis

The fabric is made in house, from technical ripstop, with all over print of our hand painted artwork. Hidden in the print are Death's-head hawk moths, an insect that represents a plethora of folkloric meanings, most commonly though it has sinister associations.

'According to superstition, the death's head hawk moth, Acherontia atropos, with its skull and crossbones markings and loud squeak, was a harbinger of death, war and disease.'
