Structures and characteristics
In cultureDuring the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries a booming international trade in plumes, to satisfy market demand in North America and Europe for extravagant head-dressesas adornment for fashionable women, caused so much destruction (for example, to egret breeding colonies) that a major campaign against it by conservationists led to the Lacey Act and caused the fashion to change and the market to finally collapse. Frank Chapman noted in 1886 that as many as 40 species of birds were used in about three-fourths of the 700 ladies' hats that he observed in New York City.
More recently, rooster plumage has become a popular trend as a hairstyle accessory, with feathers formerly used solely as fishing lures being now used to provide color and style to hair. Modern feather usage in fashion and also adorning military regimental headresses and cloths are derived as a waste product of farming of poultry birds, this includes chicken, geese, turkey, pheasant and ostrich. Feathers used for these purposes are deliberately modified through dyeing and manipulation to enhance the appearance of these poultry feathers, as they are naturally often dull in appearance compared to wild species which they are attempting to mimic. The number of feather products manufacturers in Europe has decreased enormously in the last 60 years mainly due to competition from Asia. One surviving company Jaffe et fils founded in 1946, formerly of London now based in Axminster, Devon is one of the last in Europe to dye and manufacture feather products for fashion, theatre and military regalia. Feathers have adorn hats at many prestigious events such as Weddings and Ladies day at Race courses(Royal Ascot). One milliner, Philip Treacy, has specialized in the use of feathers. He has created highly regarded hats notably for the Royal Family. One such as the hat was worn by the Camilla now the Duchess of Cornwall on her marriage to Prince Charles.
