Sustainable Feather Accessories

Hair Clips.

Even though feathers are natural and completely biodegradable they aren’t always ethical. Some birds, like the peacock are sometimes bred just for their feathers and in some places plucked alive.  Chickens/cockerel or game feathers tends to be a side product of the meat industry. Which is not very ethical either, but still a waste product. So always worth taking into consideration where your feathers come from. Check out Feathered Fantasy for example. Stylish and sustainably sourced.

This beautiful old feather duster made from cockerel feathers came my way through Shabitat. All the feathers were hand threaded one by one and then rolled around a wooden stick to create the duster.

I unraveled the feather thread and cut off small lengths, glued them onto alligator clips and added vintage buttons. Simple yet effective.

Ready for the Races.

I love a good fascinator. But I see nothing fun in those beige and boring “mother of the bride” numbers. If I was going to make them they had to be made from found trinkets, lost toys and records of course.

The 7″ vinyl makes a perfect base to embellish. First, I put them in the oven on a low heat so they go a bit soft. This makes them easier to shape.

This batch was made with netting, buttons and feathers and the occasional frog, rat or cat!

Available made to order or sometimes in my Etsy Shop
