Circa the year 1920-1923 there will have been around 20 Feather merchants and manufacturers based in the London Golden Lane / Charterhouse Square area - EC1.
Originally from Poland, the Powell family established the Ostrich Feather Manufacturing Company in 1923. This came about following a keen family interest in fashion and initially the successful making and selling of feather hats. From these small beginnings, the busines grew to become a fully fledged manufacturer and provider of feather products.
Feather products cover the normal Ostrich Feather, Peacock Feather, Goose Quills, Chicken and Turkey Feathers Coque feathers (derived from the french word Coque) as well as finished articles such as Feather handbags, Lined Feather Shawls, Feather Masks, Feather hats and so on.
Feathers can be treated and prepared in a variety of ways for both presentation and colour. Feathers can be stripped (feathers are removed leaving the tips only), feathers can be burned (the edges of the feathers removed) and feathers can be dyed into a broad range of colours or multiple colours from a broad range of feather types. Chinchilla feahers are also a speciality whereby some areas of feather with natrual colouring are not affected by the dyeing process leaving a special two tone effect.
