Welcome to Cape and Crown, designers of unique and original hand-made feather accessories, ranging from hair adornments of all sizes, to head pieces and hats to bespoke custom and up cycled clothing. Our ethos is simple; to create innovative and beautiful custom made pieces, both ethically and responsibly. We have such a passion for what we do – each item is made with love, care and attention that we believe is translated into each final piece. All our feathers are locally sourced from birds such as goose, duck and Pheasant. They are either naturally shed or come from the local game butcher after they have been used first for food, no birds are ever harmed solely for the purpose of our creations, The feathers are saved from disposal methods such as incineration and landfill, which we think is much better for our environment and in some small way the beauty of the birds lives on.
The feathers are then meticulously prepared for hand dying in a rainbow of stunning colours, then lovingly dried, reshaped and trimmed…then they are ready for our creations! Most of the other materials used in our pieces have been sourced from vintage and charity shops, jumble sales, craft shops & artisans from our local area. This way we can help support charities and local crafts people by helping you look fabulous! It’s important to us that we try to do what we do as responsibly and sustainably as possible.
