From an early age owner Abby Arauz developed a great passion for dance and theater.  After college, she was led to New York City where she experienced a ten-year career as a Rockette traveling the world and dancing on stage at the famous Radio City Music Hall.

During this time, with Abby’s extensive work in the entertainment industry along with the creative spark in her eye for art & style, she was inspired to develop The Feather Place NYC Showroom located in the heart of the Garment District as a source for buying feathers within the costume and fashion industry. The Feather Place LA opened in 2006 catering to clients in the entertainment, fashion, and event industries.

Abby now calls Missouri home where the “Feather Factory” and Dye Shop Facility are located.  She lives in a cabin in the woods with her two joyous children and husband.

The Feather Place provides a vast array of feathers for:

  • Fashion Designers
  • Film, Television, Theatre & Music Industries
