The Story Behind The Craft

Handmade, Cruelty-free Feather Jewellery & Bohemian Accessories Based in Spain - Shipping from the U.K
We are Phat Feathers!
Dreamers - Wanderers - Creators
Phat Feathers began in 2012 when Kate found out about the unethical practices used in obtaining feathers for fashion. This set the intent to provide a cruelty-free alternative to the feather fashion that one normally finds in high-street stores and, as a result, feel comfortable and happy wearing them. The hope is that the Phat Feathers ethos will inspire people to shop conscientiously by knowing where those materials have come from and the story behind the craft.
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 various sources:
* the wild
* no-kill hobby farms
* reputable cruelty-free feather distributors
* avian sanctuaries and refuges
Since the beginning, new jewellery making techniques have developed to include macramé, wire/metal working, as well as feather crafts. Kate and her husband Sebastian manage the evolving business together, creating unique jewellery and accessories, which they sell online and at music festivals in Europe and Latin America. They source high-quality materials and fair-trade jewellery during their travels and continue in their search for more ethical feathers.
Their shared love of animals, handmade crafts and passion for travel has enabled them to live a nomadic lifestyle taking them on many great adventures and animal rescue missions.
Without our customers continued support for our creations and donations to our street animal fundraiser none of this would be possible. We are eternally grateful to you all and hope that you feel PHAT (pretty, hot and tempting) knowing that you have made all of this possible.
 
Feather donations are always welcome provided they are cruelty-free!
