Lamplight offers QUALITY feather boas in three types and a variety of thicknesses and weight. Customers should be wary of some boas who make their weight up by using heavier cord and sparser feathers.

MARABOU BOAS: The marabou feather is actually a turkey down under feather. The term "marabou" dates from the 19th century and originally referred to a similar feather from the African Marabou Stork. Domestic turkey marabou is white and takes a dye very well. Sizes are  medium-weight and heavy-weight. Popular fashion uses include trimming for garments, costumes and hats. They are sometimes called trim boas and are a popular costume, event,  and holiday decor item: white and ivory for wedding, green and red for Christmas, black and orange of Halloween, pastels for Easter, etc. Stocked in 20-25 colors.

CHANDELLE FEATHER BOAS: The chandelle feather is also a type of turkey feather: a turkey flat from the domestic bird.  Chandelle boas are light and fluffy with a larger diameter that the marabou boas. The medium-weight 40 gram is another style of trim boa with many of the same uses as the marabou boas. The heavy-weight 120 gram is a fashion boa for costumes, dressing up, parties, fantasy festivals and other fun events. About twenty colors are available, including two-tone black and white, black and red and turquoise and white.

OSTRICH FEATHER BOAS: These are the most luxurious and expensive of trim and fashion boas. Constructed with individual fibers from quality ostrich plumes woven in a cord core, they have a wonderful and delicate movement to them. Lighter weight 2 ply and four ply are used as trim in high end fashion and costume applications. The 6 ply and 8 ply are the finest feather boas commonly available. We stock these in about 15 colors including the popular white, red, black, hot pink and turquoise. We have 8 ply two tone stenciled ostrich feather boas in black and red, black and white, white and black, and brown and cream.

A "theater grade" ostrich feather is the very highest grade and must be custom ordered. We can take your order for theater grade. Call us for a quote.
