Bespoke lace and feather capelets

A feathery capelet is the perfect accessory in any season and adds a beautifully femine finishing touch. For a summer wedding or special occasion choose a delicate antique lace capelet trimmed with a single layer of floaty ostrich feathers. For a winter occasion a pure wool capelet with layers of Chincilla coque feathers or ostrich feathers will keep you cosy in style.

How we make our capelets

The starting point for all our capelets is an antique or vintage lace collar. We line this with pure silk for comfort. Winter capelets are hand made with pure wool lined with Bremsilk using an original 1940s pattern. The new feather fringe used for our capelets is available in a host of colours and feather types and we will send you samples to choose from.

Finishing embellishments

This is where your capelet can truly reflect your wedding or special occasion style. We have a variety of genuine Art Deco, Edwardian and Victorian closures to choose from including rhinestones, cut steel, glass and pearls. For a final touch of luxury we can hand embellish the lace with vintage French sequins, tiny pearls or glass beads.

How to order

Please call us or send an email with outline of what you’re looking for. We’ll then arrange an appointment to talk through your ideas and discuss the options available. This can either be in person at our studio or by telephone, Skype or Facetime. Ideally you should allow around 6 - 8 weeks for a bespoke order (possibly longer if we are sourcing vintage pieces especially for you). Please see our Ordering from us page for further details.
