Feather & Find, brought to life by the visionary Scottish designer Heather Dixon, is more than just a fashion brand; it's a testament to the power of conscious creation and the profound impact of ethical and artisanal craftsmanship. Heather's journey through the world of garment production led her to a profound realization—one that would shape the essence of Feather & Find.
Her experiences in various countries, including the large-scale factories of China, left her with a sense of emptiness. She had witnessed the stark conditions in which people worked and existed, and it cast a shadow on her creative process. Heather knew that she no longer wanted to be a part of an industry that carried that heavy imprint of energy.
Then, Bali entered her life, and with it, a new way of working and creating. Bali was a revelation, a place where artisanship was deeply woven into the fabric of everyday life. Here, Heather found artisans who approached their craft with joy and a sense of fulfillment, far removed from the soulless mechanization she had encountered before.
Fortuitously, in Bali, Heather crossed paths with an exceptional tailor named Wayan. Their partnership would blossom over the course of 14 years into a beautiful business founded on trust and loyalty. Together, they set out to create garments and products that were not just aesthetically superior but also resonated with a unique energy—a positive, uplifting force that transcended the mere material.
At the heart of Feather & Find's creations are prints that tell a meaningful story. Often, these prints are border prints, and Wayan's exceptional skills in precision cutting bring them to life in a way that defies replication. Each print is a masterpiece, meticulously cut to perfection. The result is a collection of garments that are a fusion of design, craftsmanship, and energy—a testament to the artisan's touch and the designer's vision.
Feather & Find represents a harmonious marriage of Scottish design sensibilities and Balinese artisanal craftsmanship. It's a brand where each piece embodies the spirit of the island and the soul of its creators. It's a celebration of creation with intention, artistry, and authenticity, and it stands as an embodiment of the beautiful synergy between two worlds.
Slow Fashion; A Worldwide Movement

Coined for the first time by Kate Fletcher from the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, the ‘slow approach’ intervenes as a revolutionary process in the contemporary world because it encourages taking time to ensure quality production, to give value to the product, and contemplate the connection with the environment.
