Announcement   MOVING SALE! EVERYTHING in the shop is HALF OFF for the month of March (prices shown are the already discounted price)

I've always been drawn to the beauty of feathers. Perhaps it has something to do with the feeling of nomadic freedom birds can evoke...since I'm somewhat of a nomad myself. I source supplies from reputable sources and use cruelty free feathers!

For a while now I’ve been designing just for myself, but I kept getting stopped on the street with compliments about the feather headbands and earrings I was wearing…and not just passing comments, but stop and rave kind of interactions. It happened so much in fact that I finally decided to start making them to put here on Etsy.

I love to barter...what do you want to trade?

Last updated on July 3, 2011
We are a husband and wife team making feather jewelry to support our travel addiction (check us out at : www.vwlivingthedream.com)

We do our best to purchase supplies from reputable sources. We use cruelty free feathers in our designs. Since many of you have asked about the ethics of wearing feathers from these birds and how they are treated we’ve looked into our sources.

What cruelty free means to us :

The feathers we use and sell come from domestic birds such as chickens, peacocks, and pheasants. We do not use or sell feathers from any wild or endangered bird species. These birds are bred on several farms in Colorado and Utah and we are told that they have a much better quality of life than birds that are bread for human consumption. They are not cramped together in tiny cages because this would cause fighting and pecking that would damage their feathers. They are killed by asphyxiation in their sleep because any sort of throat slitting would get blood on the feathers. The meat from these birds is not sold for human consumption (since they aren’t pumped full of hormones and fed a fattening diet like a Tyson chicken is) but their meat is used for animal feed.

So basically cruelty free means that these birds have a better quality of life, are killed more humanely, and that no part of the bird is wasted.

We’re glad you asked as having an environmentally friendly and ethically conscious business is important to us. We have worked in the non-profit sector, for farmer’s markets, and for an organic holistic grocery store so we’ve learned a lot about the impact our actions have on this earth.
