Beetle wings first appeared in Europe in the 1820s, exported from India by the East India Trading Company. These beetle wing encrusted fabrics were created by local artisans on a small scale, but due to the growing trend in Europe, specifically England, of collecting "exotic goods" from the far corners of their Empire, larger industry centers were needed. They set up in Calcutta, Madras and Delhi.The European women could take the textiles and have them fashioned in iridescent, glittery dresses.

This 19th century mat is decorated with beetle wings, gold braid and gold thread. It was made in India
This bag uses the vivid-green iridescent casings from the wings of an Indian beetle. Known as "beetle wings" these were popular trimming for women's dresses and accessories from the 1830s because of their resemblance to emeralds when seen at a distance or in subdued evening light. Lengths of muslin with applied beetle wings were imported from India to be made up into gowns or shawls, and sometime simple loose ready-made dresses were sent.
