Feathers & Bows Couture Millinery have taken great care and attention to the presentation of the contents of their website.  We have tried to ensure that all item descriptions and colour representations are as accurate as we can, but as all computer screens will vary in their display and colour representation as will peoples interpretations of descriptions, we hope you are able to find exactly what you are looking for.  If you are in any doubt as to the description of a product or on the colour selections, please contact us for some help and guidance.  Many customers find it easier when selecting a colour to send in a colour sample that they have matched to their outfit (or fabric sample, if having it made) and we will match it up to the materials.  We also dye materials and feathers. Most people use the colour cards found in DIY stores to match to.
