The origins and inspiration behind Lolo Light Foundation

Our name

In Malagasy, the language of Madagascar, “lolo” means butterfly, moth, or soul. With iridescent wings creating a kaleidoscopic effect as they refract the light, they are considered by some to be the most beautiful insect on earth. Yet, in subdued light, their wings can appear far less remarkable. Without light, their true beauty cannot be recognized.

The founders of Lolo Light were inspired by the moth’s process of transformation from an overlooked lifeform to a radiant soul.  Big, beautiful, and bright.

“Lolo reminds us all to follow the light.”
