We are often asked how our feathers have been obtained and whether they are cruelty-free. We categorise our feathers in the following way....
* ETHICALLY SOURCED - These have been taken free-roaming game birds & non-protected birds (such as Crows & Magpies) for pest control. They are obtained on private land in compliance with UK Wildlife Conservation Laws.
* NATURALLY SHED - I have a limited number of Naturally Shed feathers as these can only be taken from DOMESTICALLY kept birds.
* FARM/FACTORY SOURCED - These are feathers that have been collected from farmed poultry, as a bi-product of the meat industry.
