Killstar, also known as Killstar Occult Luxury, is a Scottish Goth lifestyle and apparel company that markets goods made in China through the internet. It is a division of Draco Distribution Ltd., with an office address of 1037 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, United Kingdom, G3 7TZ, and a warehouse at Unit 9 Boundary Rd, Rutherglen, Glasgow, G73 1DB.

Draco Distribution Ltd was incorporated on September 18th, 2013 for the retail sale of clothing in specialized stores. It registered the Coven Cosmetix brand line of beauty, bath, and laundry products in 2016; the Killstar trademark for clothing and housewares in 2017; and the Kreeptures line of toys, games, and jewelry in 2017.

The following information comes from the cmpany's web site:

Beauty is in Diversity. We believe that together we can make a difference. We believe that seemingly small steps in the right direction can turn out to be the biggest steps in our lives. KILLSTAR are devoted to giving back to our communities and to help raise awareness of world issues, old and new. We are making monthly donations to a number of causes and charities [including] NAACP, Animal Equality, [and] Black Lives Matter. We welcome any feedback of organisations that we should get involved in, All of our products are designed in the UK and manufactured in Asia - not in sweatshops, only in factories we have approved of in person.

Most of the graphics used on Killstar clothing and accoutrements are starkly black and white, and although designed exclusively for Killstar, they are often reminiscent of earlier graphics from Europe and the United States, and they are imprinted with words in English.

In the late 2010s, the company released two fortune telling tea cups and saucers, as part of its line of Goth drink ware. These are the Killstar Cosmic cup and saucer and the Killstar Zodiac cup and saucer.

For similar contemporary Goth taseeomancy fortune telling designs made in China, see the offerings from the comparable British online company Rogue and Wolf.
