Butterfly by-products from Marinduque

Some imaginative residents from the towns of Mogpog, Boac and Gasan are engaged in handicrafts and souvenir items that make use of dried butterfly specimens. An additional source of income, such items find their way into trade fairs, souvenir shops in the Metro and are often hunted locally by visiting tourists.

Keisha Handicrafts based in Brgy. Ino, Mogpog is only one of the many that produce these butterfly by-products. Some of those unique items are shown here.
