Moth & Rust Apparel is a slow fashion line dedicated to the fusion of timeless garb and artisanal quality, created by K. Dare Massie-DeVito between the mountains and the sea of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Dare handcrafts each piece of clothing from her own patterns, ethically sourced textiles, and hand dyes unique colors with low~impact dyes.

Her background in anthropology and literature greatly influence her work, as each piece carries with it the stories that inspire the artist. These influences usually include high fantasy adventures, deeply woven mythologies, legendary heroes and exquisite artifacts.

Each piece is carefully designed to capture the feeling of our most fantastical costumes, and our most beloved comfort clothes.
