After discovering that the feather trade often uses practices such as live-plucking of birds, I will no longer use commercial feathers. Although crafting feathers are not generally obtained through this barbaric practise, the majority are still a result of inhumanely kept birds in the battery-farm industry, which I can not support.
I have made the decision to only use ETHICAL FEATHERS in all products that I sell, locally sourced where possible..
These include moulted found feathers, moulted feathers from local poultry and game keepers, and feathers from free-range chickens etc. (only when I can personally verify the conditions the birds are kept, and whose feathers are a by-product that would otherwise be discarded).
I know where each and every feather I source has come from, and can provide these details as requested..
I also meticulously prepare and dye the feathers myself. That way, I am involved in every part of the process, so my customers can be sure that my feathers are 100% ethical.
If you have any further queries about my policy or my processes, then please do not hesitate to contact me, and I'll only be too happy to answer your questions.
