Our Process

Tailfeather products are meticulously designed and hand crafted by husband and wife team Sai and Natalia in their studio nestled in the Tallarook ranges of Victoria. After three years, Tailfeather is recognised for its ambitious standards in quality and design.

The 2012 range is built upon the knowledge and experience gained from time spent in the workshop. Small runs and attention to detail ensure the highest possible quality is maintained. To do so they follow four key design principles—

Nº 1.

Timeless design

Timeless design is integral to the quality of all of the Tailfeather product range.

Each piece is designed to look great, meet the practical requirements of day-to-day use, and last for years.

Nº 2.

Traditional Craft

Tailfeather pieces are created using a unique combination of modern technology and traditional crafting techniques.

Concepts created on paper and developed in the studio are refined on computer. Patterns are cut and then trimmed by hand. Panels are hand-stitched and edges are burnished with natural beeswax. Custom-made, solid brass hardware is handset. Branding and details are laser etched.

Nº 3.

Durable materials

Tailfeather products use only quality materials. Combined with minimal panelling, strong seams, and solid brass hardware ensures Tailfeather pieces will last.

Tailfeather uses top-grain leather from Italy. Kangaroo leather is used for wallets and card holders. Canvas products are made from an Australian made, military grade canvas.

Nº 4.

Practical function

Practical functionality is fundamental to Tailfeather’s design principles. Each piece is conceived to serve a specific purpose.

Bags are designed to fit the body and distribute weight comfortably. They feature phone pockets, computer pockets and key-ring clips. Wallets are slimline for comfort and convenience.
