What are artificial feathers? Well you might think that by looking at the word, they are feathers who look and feel like real feathers right? Well, not in Brazil. Artificial feathers are specially used in carnival parade costumes in big or small quantities as an accent or back wings for example. Some artificial feathers when seen from far away in a parade looks just like the real feather. That's the beauty of it!
Some artificial feathers are custom made to match a theme, a costume or a float. We got extremely happy when we were contacted to sell these artificial feathers, specially because they are made in Brazil, and hand made.
