About Ostrich feathers
Rarity started experimenting with Ostrich feathers four years ago, and this has since become a signature material core to our design.
About 70 percent of South Africas 700 ostrich farmers are to be found in the Southern Cape, 15 percent in the Eastern Cape with the remainder scattered around the country. The industry directly supports some 20 000 jobs in the farming and processing sectors, and the ostrich business is responsible for tens of thousands more jobs in the fields of tourism, specialist crafts, by-products, transport, feed and veterinary services.
All our Feathers are obtained from legal suppliers and tanned to international specifications as set by the European Union. Azo dyes and Chromium content are regulated, and our tanners have environmental certifications.
