Phat Feathers was founded in 2012 by Kate Littlefoot with the intention to provide an alternative, ethical option to the feather fashion that one normally finds in high street stores. The hope is that the ethos of Phat Feathers will inspire people to shop conscientiously and therefore feel comfortable and happy in what they are wearing.

Be Pretty Hot And Tempting! Be PHAT!

You can read our full story by heading over to our blog, which contains lots of information and photos of the journey in the search for cruelty-free feathers at www.phatfeathers.com 

Since the beginning, new jewellery making techniques have developed to include macrame, wire/metal working, as well as feather crafts. Our feather jewellery uses only naturally moulted feathers from healthy, happy birds that are not exploited for their meat or plumage. All birds moult at least once annually and grow in new feathers to protect themselves from the elements and provide warmth. These old feathers then begin a new phase in the creations of Phat Feathers.

Our feathers come from:
* the wild
* no-kill hobby farms
* reputable cruelty-free feather distributors
* avian sanctuaries and refuges

The Phat Feathers store also stocks a variety of other fairtrade jewellery and accessories sourced during travels overseas. Much of the year is spent travelling, collecting materials and handcrafting jewellery before returning to the U.K to trade at festivals. We pride ourselves on using the highest quality materials that are ethically sourced from Latin America & Asia to create beautiful accessories that are durable and entirely unique. During the festival season we also offer hair wrapping, hair feather and face painting services. You can purchase our jewellery in our online store, Etsy store, and at retail outlets in Panama, Germany and the U.K.
