Our ReMUSEable Throws
Muses is focused on creating sustainable throws that can be reused long after the Mardi Gras season. Known for wonderful and unusual throws, Muses has been throwing innovative, locally-made, and sustainably-sourced items since its inception.
Muses Community Involvement
Since its inception in 2000, the Krewe of Muses has been committed to improving our community through effective action. Together, we have helped reconstruct homes after tragedy, worked with community partners to create spectacular decorations for our parade, and raised hundreds of thousands for causes we care about deeply.
